Re-Thinking the beauty of “stuff”
Download this information
PurposeInspiring everyone to appreciate the beauty of the “stuff” we discard every day.
Artists of all ages are encouraged to re-think their vision of art and submit works made from 100% recycled materials – reclaimed, reused, recovered, second-hand, salvaged – anything un-new!
The primary focus in a traditional art show is the visual appeal of the piece. Re-Think Art takes it a step further by including a criterion for the creativity demonstrated in transforming “stuff” into something new and original.Categories
