ART FROM DETRITUS
RE-cycling is good but UP-cycling is better!!!!
Your art could be part of the solution!!!
If you make art from things that would have been thrown away – broken stuff, old stuff, burned stuff, torn stuff transformed into art- 2D & 3D in any media rescued from trash, your art is eligible.
It’s happening again & its our 20th Anniversary!
The exhibit “Art of Detritus: Recycling with Imagination” features fine art from cast-off materials created by professional artists from throughout the world. The heart of this exhibit is the message of the three R’s: Reduce/Reuse/Recycle.
The Art From Detritus Exhibition is a juried competition for dynamic, inventive and provocative work created from a multitude of materials that would have been discarded if not rescued for artmaking.
