August 18–September 8. The Glass City and Motown come together in Van Wert here at the Wass, in this unique exhibit of scraps from opposite ends of the spectrum. Scrap Detroit's twelve teams of welders will hoist their large, kinetic sculptures made from bicycle parts into the Wassenberg Art Center and Dani Herrera (Paper DenimArt on Facebook) of Toledo will exhibit her collages made from tiny bits of fabric, paper and even zippers. We'll host a opening party to celebrate this duality of creativity following Main Street Van Wert's Hidden Spaces tour. Free munchies, live music by Lee Warren and Mike Hillock, cash bar.

The welded sculptures will then be auctioned off in October in Detroit and the proceeds will go to support the new Detroit Fitness Foundation and SPARC Detroit (Society to Promote Art & Recreation in the Community) More information will be available if you would like to bid. Dani Herrera's work will be for sale here at the Wassenberg at reasonable prices.
