To increase its sustainability practices, the Smithsonian is making a huge effort to decrease its waste and recycle what it does produce. Along the same theme, campers discover artists that have used trash and made beautiful art as well as functional items: game pieces made into furniture; portraits made from old cassette tapes; metals, electronic pieces, and hard drives made into animals. Campers gain a better understanding of sustainability and are inspired to create their own pieces after visiting the Smithsonian’s American Art, American History, and  Natural History museums.
