Ellen Sall - Finders Keepers
The Philadelphia International Airport provides the opportunity for a variety of local artists to share their creativity through rotating art exhibitions that change throughout the year. In an ongoing effort to introduce a variety of cultural and educational experiences to the many travelers that pass through the airport, many unique displays can be discovered here. One of the featured artists this summer is Ellen Sall, a Philadelphia resident that combines her passions for collecting junk into an expressive art form, creating clever totems and lamp posts. A member of Dumpster Divers of Philadelphia, Ellen gives new life to once loved but now discarded items. Her creativity captured my eye as she incorporated teacups, pots, and such into her unique assemblages.
