What would you create from a blank canvas? What if that blank canvas was once a piece of trash? Beginning in 2008, Ken Marquis, artist and founder of Pennsylvania-based nonprofit Landfillart, Inc., solicited more than 1,000 artists from around the world to create and donate works of art made from discarded automobile hubcaps.
