Visit the William Benton Museum of Art to see an exhibition that was inspired by an artist's appreciation for discarded material. The collection, entitled "From Objects to Object: Found Sculpture by Leo Sewell," is made from items artist Leo Sewell found from flea markets, trash bins and sales, which he later bound together through various means to create sculptures that range in size from pieces that can be placed on tabletops to huge installations that can dwarf the tallest man. One of the many pieces in Sewell's exhibition includes "Teddy Bear" (pictured), a unique impersonation of a common toy.
