Jim Shores creates sculptures, assemblages and environmental art from found objects. Jim learned at an early age to make do with what he found around him. His parents operated a garage that serviced garbage trucks and he found himself amazed at the amount of things people threw away. He decided to do something with his newly found treasures. Jim thinks that playing with a Mr. Potato Head influenced many of his works later on. Some of Jim's works are in the permanent collection at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA and at the Polk Museum in Lakeland, Fl.
In this piece Jim Shores recreated the Empire State Building using old license plates. Wire in the back for hanging on a wall.
