Students plant wooden flowers for daylong exhibit

Powerhouse Park was the setting for “Flower Power: Trash To Art,” exhibit created by the students of Del Mar Hills Academy on April 22.

Their painted wooden flowers — emblazoned with bottle caps, margarine tubs, corks and other pieces of everyday trash — was displayed on the park lawn from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The installation mimicked a meadow sprinkled with spring flowers.

The project was inspired by 2009′s “Fish for Thought,” an award-winning environmental art project in which more than 400 Hills students collected trash and worked with recycled trash artist “Rodrigo” (aka Rodney McCoubrey) to create beautiful artwork that highlighted the problem of trash on beaches.

This year’s exhibit was a poignant visual message about environmentalism in the greater Del Mar community.
