REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE EXHIBIT – CALL FOR ARTISTS

PARTICIPATE IN THE

HI-DESERT NATURE MUSEUM’S

“REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE” EXHIBITION

ON DISPLAY JANUARY 25 – APRIL 26, 2014

OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY, JANUARY 24th, 5:00-7:00 PM

 

 

As part of our Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 19, 2014 the local community is invited to contribute artwork made from recycled or reused materials for display in our “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” exhibition.  Paintings, sculpture, mixed media creations, photographs of recycled products, or any other art-related objects can be loaned to the museum for display in the exhibition.  Individual and group projects are welcome and children are particularly encouraged to participate.

In today’s era of heightened environmental awareness, artists are increasingly turning to junk stores, trash bins, and surplus outlets to satisfy their urge to create while still caring for the planet.  This exhibit is designed to make people rethink our throw-away society by sharing the local community’s innovative and often surprising use of reused and recycled materials.

Artwork must be dropped off in person at the museum Friday, January 17th, or Saturday, January 18th, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  The artwork will be displayed on a first-come, first-serve basis until the temporary gallery space is full.  Please be sure the artwork you share with us is of low monetary value and small enough to be hung easily or displayed in an exhibit case.  Please ensure that paintings have hanging hardware attached.  Limit three artworks per artist.  No nudes can be displayed in the museum. No artwork will be accepted that is made of combustible or toxic materials, live animal/plant matter, perishable food products, or other harmful items to the museum’s other artifacts or visitors. The museum reserves the right to refuse any artwork made of questionable materials. After the close of the exhibition artwork will be available for pickup Thursday, May 1 through Saturday, May 3 , between 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Please call the museum for additional information at (760) 369-7212
