Call For Entries begins NOW…
Excitement is building for Fort Lauderdale’s Trash to Treasure Creative Reuse Center annual exhibit and competition, aptly called “Trash 2 Art”, hosted at Arts Park in Young Circle, Hollywood, Florida in the Visual Arts Pavilion. The opening reception will be November 15, 2014 from 6:30p to 9:30p, in conjunction with Hollywood’s monthly ArtWalk as is free to the public. The complete exhibit runs from November 5 – December 5, 2014.
To enter, T2T Member Adult participants must register, donate a modest entry fee of only $25 per person, for up to three entries each, and bring his/her piece to the gallery on Saturday, November 1st, between 10am – 2pm for art intake. The entry fee for Member Children is $15. Non-members may enter for a modest donation of $50 per person. Space is limited, so register early.
Theme: Trash-2-Art promotes the creative reuse of materials such as fabric, tile, Styrofoam, various plastics, wire and other “scrap” materials that are not generally targeted in mainstream recycling programs. These materials exemplify the potential of art of interest, education and beauty while teaching the community to rethink what we have in our own backyard. Honoring all resources and using our imagination is the goal.
These materials are available to Trash 2ART participants at Trash to Treasure, Broward County’s own non-profit creative reuse center, located at ArtServe in downtown Fort Lauderdale, but participants may gather their own materials from any location.
Artwork must contain at least 75% of materials that are considered “residual”, “scrap” and typically are not recyclable in mainstream programs.( E.G, we discourage the use of aluminum cans and plastic bottles #1 or #2 for art projects as these are highly reclaimable with superior environmental benefit. Exceptions will be considered.)
Registration is available in 5 categories and cash & prizes will be awarded:
Student K -5
Student 6 – 8
Student 9 – 12
Adult – Amateur
Adult – Professional
