New exhibit Hidden in Plain Sight turns trash into action-inspiring art

The latest exhibit from Seattle artist Maria Phillips gets us thinking about how we use single-use plastics. At Bellevue Arts Museum through March 8th, 2020.

SEATTLE — Seattle artist Maria Phillips is really taking the phrase one woman's trash is another woman's treasure to the next level! 

Hidden in Plain Sight is a new exhibit at the Bellevue Arts Museum and it's comprised completely out of recycled materials. Phillips was inspired to create these works after spending a five-month residency at Recology's material recovery facility in Seattle.

Phillips hopes that by drawing attention to discarded single-use items, it may help us question the need for these items in the future.

Hidden in Plain Sight is at Bellevue Arts Museum until March 8th, 2020.
