Folk art made from scraps at SFO Airport

SFO art exhibit

Second Chances, an exhibit filled with art made from recycled scraps of this and that is on view at San Francisco International Airport.

Among the more than 200 objects on display are Senegalese scrap metal briefcases, Mexican license-plate dustpans, Moroccan water containers made from rubber tires and colorful South African baskets made from telephone wire.

The fanciful, decorative objects also include everything from a bird sculpture made from toilet paper mâché and magazines to an entire dress made from Mary Jane candy wrappers.


You get a chance to see Second Chances if you’re stuck at San Francisco International Airport and find your way to Terminal 3, Boarding Area F someone between now and the end of June 2011.
