Hopewell Valley Arts Council Announces “The Junkyard Upcycle Art Exhibition”
Thursday, April 22, 6:30-7 pm
Calling All Artists! Be the first to hear about The Junkyard, an outdoor upcycle art exhibition, to be held this summer by the HV Arts Council at Woolsey Park! “Upcycling” involves reusing objects for practical or aesthetic purposes, prolonging their usefulness, and diverting them from a landfill. The artwork will be created primarily with materials that would normally be considered junk or trash – like plastic bottles, metal tools, packing foam, wood pallets, discarded books, car parts – all reimagined into art, sculpture, and even musical instruments, proving the saying that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” We are looking for artists, families, and teams to participate and be ready to accept our art challenge.
