The latest exhibition to open at Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery is a thought-provoking collection of sculptures by recycling artist Val Hunt.
Themed around the issue of animal extinction and human impact on delicate ecosystems, this new exhibition sees drinks cans and plastic bags, among other items, sculpted into an assortment of colourful creatures, each representing a species now lost or on the verge of dying out.
With inspiration, ingenuity, humour and skill Val has crafted a fascinating selection of animals, exotic birds, fish, dinosaurs and species of flora, from a selection of throw away material, especially her favourite medium, drinks can metal.
Also on display is a selection of endangered species form Heritage Doncaster’s taxidermy collection.
The exhibition presents a message about recycling and preservation, raising awareness of why the creatures on show are endangered or extinct.
