Homeless Carts, 1988-89

Public, civic performative sculpture, Richmond, VA

Bradley McCallum in collaboration with its user designed 11 vehicles given to individuals who collected aluminum cans and other materials for recycling. John Henderson returned his cart on June 5, 1989 after he was diagnosed with cancer and no longer had the physical strength to continue collecting cans. The other carts remained the property of the individuals who used them -- resulting in an ongoing public installation that sustained a visible presence in Richmond for several years.
