art and reuse with Louise Nevelson

Artist Louise Nevelson's work is crafted from found wood objects that are arranged and painted in a monochromatic fashion. Before she became an exhibiting artist, the impoverished Nevelson collected discarded wood from the streets to burn as firewood.

Nevelson used everything from boxes and crates to bowling pins and wood bannister posts. For a detailed biography, check out
