Union Station usually just has trains and buses, but now there is a catamaran in the Great Hall. The “Cat-Fish” was designed by David Murphy and built by eighteen student woodworkers for the 2012 Oil Drum Art “Bang the Drum!” Energy and Environmental Exhibition. The 15-foot prototype will see some water action in May.
A bicycle, prayer wheel, sink, and eagle are among other pieces of art — forty in all — created from recycled 55-gallon steel drums.Trash drum art by Hartford students is also on display in Union Station.
This exhibit will remain in the Great Hall through May 26, 2012.
