The Salvation Army is supporting 5,000 people with food since many who have recovered from Ebola often return home to find their possessions removed to ward off further infection.

Many Colorado cities and towns felt the love from The Salvation Army and expressed their gratitude.

But artists in Lyons, CO turned their loss into art by creating a “found objects” exhibit from items scattered by the September floods.

The exhibit contains pieces made up of touching personal momentos that were pulled from the mud.

The rules of the exhibition are that if if you see something of yours salvaged from the wreckage, you can take it but you must leave something behind.

Lyons Art3The artists also asked us for some Salvation Army items to include in the exhibit and the photos here are the results of their efforts.
