You can read more about CR art prof Garth Johnson in next week's Art Beat , but for now, drop everything and hustle to College of the Redwoods to hear this smart, funny and accomplished man breeze through the history of creative reuse. After the historical part – and, please note, our era is notable for being the only time in which recycling and reusing are not instinctive – Garth'll share the director's cut version of his new book, 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse that features, you guessed it: 1,000 different projects by artists, designers and craftsmen from around the world that incorporate reused, recycled or repurposed items.
The lecture is today in CR's Forum Theater from noon to 1 p.m. If you can't make that, visit him at Booklegger (E & Two Street) during Arts Alive! tomorrow night from 6 to 9 p.m.
