THE BRONX - A local artist is taking trash from Bronx streets and making art.

Christian Marche's sculpture of found metal objects, welded in abstract form and painted a matte silver, sits directly above the Grand Concourse. Among the found objects are a taxi cab door, a flattened shopping cart, a refrigerator, and various bicycle parts.

Marche says he hopes his piece encourages residents to be more eco-conscious.
