BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A deteriorating former coal plant that has sat vacant along Burlington’s waterfront for the past three decades is being repurposed by local artists for use as an exhibition space.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/2bQvBml ) German artists Viktoria Strecker, Vesko Goesel and Peter Miller have been using the old Moran Coal plant to showcase about 15 works that interact with the building.

The group was invited to use the space by Overnight Projects, a company that organizes contemporary art exhibitions in Vermont.

Among the works include a sculpture Strecker created in a cement alcove that sits in a natural puddle. A majority of the pieces were made using recycled and repurposed materials.

The plant, which was decommissioned in 1986, has hosted as least three other art exhibits in the past.
