The SMART Art Competition 2009 brought out the best artists in the world who use trash as their artistic medium. The purpose of the competition was "to show how discarded items can be redesigned into works of art as well as functional everyday items." Last week winners were announced and many of the 700 pieces submitted were shown off at Lincart Gallery in San Francisco. Check out some of the most spectacular pieces that made it to the gallery.
