Exhausted Tree

Inspired by the 2017 UN environmental theme "POLLUTION", Eco Artist George Sabra aims to inspire conversations about air pollution. His latest artwork entitled "Exhausted Tree", is an 11 foot tall free standing tree sculpture, made out of reclaimed car & truck exhaust pipes and mufflers. The materials were contributed by muffler shops from the greater Austin metropolitan area. This artwork is a temporary public art installation created to celebrate the 2017 Austin Earth Day festival, while raising awareness of air pollution.
