Who are The Dumpster Divers of Philadelphia? They are a group of over 40 found object artists, meeting monthly to socialize with fellow art eccentrics, share trash-picked finds, art-making, stories, field trip and flea market news and exhibit announcements

This major group exhibition will show how found objects inspire artists to create figures, masks, political statements, abstract assemblages, still life, works of art contained in boxes, and art used for story-telling or function. Their artwork is as diverse as the group and as the materials used. All of it is engaging, often playful, sometimes political, ironic and definitely delightful.
