Dumpster-diving for materials was done out of necessity when sculptor Tom Sachs first started, but now he does it by choice. It's just one way the bricolage specialist turns almost anything into art, avoiding perfection in the process. After all, "the only advantage an artist has over industry is her fingerprints," he says.
Tom Sachs will discuss his creative process at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 10. A screening of his film 'A Space Program' will follow at 7 p.m. To reserve tickets, visit nelson-atkins.org.
