Pretty: Disturbing, art exhibit, until May 30Recycled waste art depicting the defacement of nature in our consumerist society is not a new concept. However, the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art has adopted this tried-and-true tactic as the basis of their latest exhibit "Pretty: Disturbing." By allowing four female artists--Pamela Grau Twena, Nancy Harlan, YaYa Chou and Miriam Wosk--to display their interpretations of waste's metamorphosis to beauty, OCCCA has offered a new, contemporary spin on the idea. You'll never look at your garbage the same way again.
Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, 117 N. Sycamore, Santa Ana, CA; 714-667-1517
