The Wiregrass Museum of Art is showing junk-mail, but it's not what you think.

It's the “303 Days a Year” exhibit by Auburn Artist Allyson Comstock.

The art installation features 12 handmade paper landscape paintings.

On top of those paintings are more than 4,000 paper discs.

The paper discs are all made from recycled junk mail the artist received over the course of 303 days.

The piece highlights how our waste affects our environment.

"To highlight the fact, that we are slowly destroying all of our landscapes with this waste. All of these landscapes are protected and have been compromised because they lack that protection. So it's a very powerful statement," Assistant Curator Katie Wainwright said.

The exhibit will be up until January 8th.
