"Second Time Around"
The Hubcap As Art

( featuring work by Benicia Artist Mike Kendall)

Introduction to the Objects in the Traveling Exhibition

Beginning in August 2008 the nonprofit Landfil art Project invited professional artists to turn a

discarded hubcap into a work of art to endorse creative reuse in the stewardship of the

environment. The effort began in Pennsylvania, resonated with artists, and quickly spread. To

date, more than 1,000 artists, from every U.S. state and 52 other countries, have responded.

At its opening in the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, Winchester, Virginia, from September

7, 2014, to March 1, 2015,

Second Time Around: The Hubcap as Art will present 270 of these

objects; every state in the United States and 38 other countries are represented. From

November 10, 2015, to October 20, 2018, and assuming prospective museum venues display

sufficient interest, an abbreviated version of this exhibition—35 objects representing 22 U.S.

states (four states are represented by more than one artist) and six other countries—will tour the

United States. This tour is taking place under the auspices of ExhibitsUSA, a traveling exhibition

program managed by Mid-America Arts Alliance, a nonprofit regional arts organization based in

Kansas City, Missouri.
