Artist turns Oregon coast’s plastic trash into big sea-life sculptures — with a lesson

In the spirit of this month's Coffee with the Curator event, we wanted to spotlight the incredible story of an artist who took "trash for treasures" to a whole new level.

"Aiming for art that's 'beautiful, and a little horrifying,' artist Angela Haseltine and associates picked up more than 21 tons of trash from Oregon beaches to create dozens of large sculptures illustrating the damage plastic garbage has done."

These bronze homages to Frederic Remington and Charles Russell's sculptures were once a fan favorite at the Museum and now they are back on display! These pieces include "Mountain Man," "Lassoed Mustang," and "Coming Through the Rye."

In 1900 Remington began working exclusively with the Roman Bronze Works in New York. They produced his bronzes using the lost-wax bronze casting process until his death in 1909.

Remington's widow, Eva, authorized the foundry to continue casting Remington's bronzes, until her death in 1918. By direction of Eva Remington's will, the foundry destroyed the molds shortly after her death.
