INDICE DE GALERIAS
CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (AP) — A Connecticut man is turning debris he found at a Rhode Island beach after Superstorm Sandy into art.
The Westerly Sun reports (http://bit.ly/12KVdEE ) that Matt Peel of Pawcatuck, Conn., spent a month on Misquamicut Beach picking up pieces of wood from signs, beach fencing and houses after the October storm.
Peel is making them into wooden American flags, shelves and furniture.
Peel hopes to have 15 pieces done by the end of the summer and plans to exhibit and sell the work at a local gallery.
He says none of the debris is being altered. The flags are made from blue scraps believed to be from houses and from red and white dune fencing.
He says all the proceeds go the Misquamicut Relief Fund.
