LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (UAPB) –   Recycled and Repurposed tire treads are the artist medium for creating whimsy, imaginative and nostalgic sculptures.  Danny Campbell, a Dumas native and professor of art at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) has more than 25 new works exhibited at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Campbell spends countless hours sifting through tire treads, automobile parts and other unique remnants found on Arkansas bi-ways and highways.  The materials gathered are not all usable and the process of using this material can be painstaking and difficult to manipulate, but Campbell lets the process unfold organically. 

Campbell’s life was almost claimed by a flying tire tread from an eighteen-wheeler striking the hood and window of his vehicle while he lived in Atlanta.  Although he was not injured, that moment had an everlasting effect on him and his art.
