The Eric Sloane Museum in Kent is pleased to announce their latest exhibition entitled Trash Art: Re-use, Re-cycle, Re-Imagine, and Re-purpose to be held at the Eric Sloane Museum from July 20th to July 27th. An opening reception will be held on July 20th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and during that time Bob Coppola of the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum will be holding a workshop for children and young adults entitled Making Toys From Discarded and Everyday Objects. The reception and the workshop are free.
Trash Art: Re-use, Re-cycle, Re-Imagine, and Re-purpose is part of a series of events held on the grounds of the museum throughout 2013 that playfully explores the relationship between the Eric Sloane Museum and its environs, which was once the dump for the town of Kent. The Eric Sloane Museum is seeking entries for this exhibit and invites anyone to participate in this unique, thought-provoking artistic experience that celebrates the creative side of re-cycling. Anyone of any age and artistic ability is welcome to participate and there is no charge to do so. Participants in the Trash Art exhibit will need to create their artistic works from recycled, discarded, or used materials. Prizes will be awarded in various categories including an under 18 category, and participants can even choose to have their artwork offered for sale to the general public.
