Long Description:
If you'd like to see how one person's trash can truly become someone else's treasure, you need look no further than Centralia, Wash. Here, midway between Portland and Seattle off I-5, Richart (aka Richard Tracy), a former art teacher with an independent streak, has spent the last 20 years arranging Richart's Ruins. This hodgepodge of plastic balls, old lightbulbs, hunks of Styrofoam, and other salvaged items has expanded into a one-of-a-kind installation that encircles his house at 203 M Street. And while Richart certainly has his detractors, they don't appear to have dampened his creative spirit.
