repurposedARTISAN.  Miami-based artist Michael Loveland (in yellow shirt below) was at our Denver facility yesterday selecting some billboards for his newest art installation in Miami.  

Art Collection:  repurposedMATERIALS has started a "repurposed" art collection.  We chose a work from Michael Loveland - - as our first piece.  Michael has incorporated retired advertising billboards into a number of his works.  Since billboards were our very first product we sold, we thought it fitting to start our collection with an artist who uses billboards as an ingredient in his work.  

Q: We are looking to add to our art collection pieces by artists, like Michael, who has a large % of their portfolio fit in with our "repurposed" mission/concept.  If you have an artist whose work you think we should consider, please
