ReTooled, a traveling exhibit from International Arts & Artists, is on display at the Museum of Texas Tech University. The exhibit uses paintings, sculptures, photographs and other works of art to give life to inanimate tools like hammers, saws, axes and more. The artwork ranges from representing tools with reverence and highlighting the design purity to now-obsolete tools being shown in a distorted fashion.

Dozens of pieces of art are part of the exhibit, which consists of four sections: Objects of Beauty, Material Illusions, Instruments of Satire and Tolls: An Extension of Self. The artwork comes from the Hechinger Collection, the result of hardware company owner John Hechinger attempting to make his company headquarters less bare. He amassed dozens of pieces of tool-inspired 20th-century art.
