Hopewell Valley Arts Council – The Junkyard
July 23 - July 25
The Junkyard, an upcycle art exhibition, hosted by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, will prove once and for all that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Artists’ creations will transform Woolsey Park into a temporary sculpture garden from Friday, July 23 to Sunday, July 25, reimaging trash into art — like plastic bottles, metal tools and nails, Styrofoam, wood pallets, discarded books, car parts.
The event will feature artwork by established professional and eco-artists as well as by teams/families who take on the challenge of competing to create upcycled artwork. For those in the market, the artwork and other hand-crafted items will be available for purchase. The Junkyard will also highlight “green” education with useful and educational environmentally-related displays, as well as an array of expertly restored antique vehicles.
The FIVE ZONES of the Junkyard:
- Zone 1: Creative Team Competition
- Zone 2: EcoArtist Gallery & Marketplace
- Zone 3: The Kids Gallery
- Zone 4: Local “Green” Educational Resources
- Zone 5: Restoration Alley (antique cars)
Open for one weekend only, the Junkyard celebrates creativity while raising awareness about the need to reduce in our throw-away culture and rethink disposability by upcycling, prolonging these items’ usefulness and diverting them from a landfill.
Hours: Fri 7/23 – 6pm to 8pm (last entry at 7:30pm); Sat 7/24 -11am to 8pm (last entry at 7:30pm); and Sun 7/25 – 11am to 6pm (last entry at 5:30pm). Tickets: $15 Adults / $10 Seniors (65+) / $5 Kids (up to 18) / Strollers free
