Steampunk Art at ‘Treasure That Trash’ Exhibit
In commemoration of Earth Day in April, the Ward Melville Heritage Organization will present Treasure That Trash, a not-to-be-missed exhibit of impressive artistry created from a variety of common items including recycled materials, beach trash, paint, wood and many more. The exhibit will be on display March 9 through 30, 10 am to 4 pm at WMHO’s Educational & Cultural Center in Stony Brook Village.
