Rum Cay Artist Turning Trash into Treasures

RUM CAY, THE BAHAMAS -  As the old saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” and for artist and sculptor Bobby Little, recycling discarded materials into art has literally become a larger than life mission.

For nearly a quarter of a century, Little has built a cottage industry around dead coral, trashed conch shells, abandoned oil drums and discarded metal that have either been washed onto the beaches by the Antilles Current or dumped at the local landfill on tiny Rum Cay.
