RYE, N.Y. -- Suprina, the artist who sculpted "The DNA Totem" on the Rye Arts Center's front lawn, will present "Trash Talk" at the center on Saturday.

If you've wondered about the newest sculpture in front of the center or are curious about trends in public sculpture, the artist will discuss her work, the art of assemblage, "up-cycling" and more.

"This artist's talk is sponsored in conjunction with our ongoing programs of temporary public art installations in Rye," organizers note. "If you have suggestions for future loaned works, please let our committee know. Works are selected to stimulate interest in the arts and enhance our community's visual environment. Your support and feedback are always appreciated."

Suprina has shown her sculptures widely throughout the New York area. "Based in Brooklyn, she engages the public with her whimsical, familiar yet oddly torqued sculptural works," organizers note.  "The DNA Totem" comes to Rye after a three-month installation at Harlem's Marcus Garvey Park.

The installation is part of the Rye Arts Center's Park Art Initiative.

Another sculpture currently on display is "Cope," created by Damien Vera. The piece, on loan from the Art Students League of New York, will be on view at Rye Town Park through next summer.

Call the center with any questions at 914-967-0700.

The artist talk will begin at 3 p.m. The Rye Arts Center is at 51 Milton Road. The talk also directly precedes the Small Works Exhibition and Sale.
