One man’s junk can be turned into treasure

The walls of the Hi-Desert Nature Museum are full of recycled and repurposed works of art.

YUCCA VALLEY — The Hi-Desert Nature Museum was packed Friday night for the opening of the “Reduce Reuse Recycle” art exhibit.

The works on display were produced using materials that had been recycled or re-purposed into various works of art and sculpture.

The exhibit is designed to make people rethink our throw-away society by sharing the local community’s innovative and often surprising use of reused and recycled materials.

The exhibit opened Friday and will run through April 30.

The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

One man's junk? Phrasing!


@ CheRojo fyo...
"One man's junk is another man's treasure" is a very old saying. Have you never heard it?


I've heard it as "One man's trash..." which doesn't lend itself to low brow humor.
