Art Exhibit Made of Junk

Andrew Smith's "Portal" sculpture makes junk talk. "Portal" is a rolling ball sculpture. It has a crane that lifts a steel ball onto a downward track, setting off horns, bells and whistles.

The exhibit, entitled "Poetic Kinetics", has drawn lots of attention and smiles.

It runs through October 18th.
