Recycled refrigerators as art

Nicole Beck's recycled fridge mosaic pays tribute to endangered wildlife in the Gulf

You never know what you’ll see on the streets of Chicago.

An exhibition called Fine Art Fridges, which consists of recycled refridgerators, is being sponsored by ComEd, Chicago’s utility provder around Chicago’s Magnificent Mile area. The total of nine reporposed fridges each have a special theme including Chicago arthitecture and an awesome vintage hot rod.

This unusual art show was created by ComEd to raise awareness of the utility’s Appliance Recycling Program, which gives $25 to customers when they recycle their old, secondary household refrigerators and freezers. The company estimates that 43,000 older units have been removed since the program began.

Artist Larry Grobe transformed a 1950's Philco fridge into an awesome 1928 Ford

The program runs through September 15th.

If you’re planning a trip to the Midwest anytime soon, this is definitely a must see.
