As a teen, we often visited my great uncle whose yard hosted decorative metal that he acquired from those tossing it in the trash.

A mix of torn apart appliances, wagon wheels and wrought iron which led to a song called your “Your Trash is my Cash.” It was a catchy tune, and I did not truly understand the words until my mid-30s. You may be asking, what does this have to do with art?
