Trust Art

Trust Art is a fairly new organization with an ambitious goal. It's manifesto asks " Can financial and social capital elevate art projects that are designed to elevate society?"

Trust Art's sponsors have chosen ten emerging artists and some interesting projects to answer this very question. My favorite, since it hits close to home, is Facundo's plan to construct a self sufficient home soley out of garbage and shipping containers collected from the streets of Brooklyn. I have become increasingly skeptical of what happens to my garbage, especially my recycling. It'd be nice to know it was going to a good place.

Some other art includes: The documentary starring everyone you know.A worldwide commercial campaign for bamboo bikes. And community stimulus packages.
