What Color is Your Dream?

In the Beginning, by Joanne Honschopp, Cincinnati, Ohi

A playful and learning experience for children about recycling and creativity -– where 70 artists and craftspeople from around the world have recycled and transformed discarded and abandoned hubcaps into unique and unusual works of art.

With this project we celebrate our common love of creativity and the planet, by sharing extraordinary and unique artworks that are from the LandfillArt Collection.  The exhibition shows how creativity is universal around the world and that everything can be transformed into original art.  It shows how creativity is something that holds this earth together and brings us all closer.

A companion guide will give instructions about how artists are using recycling and found objects to create works of art. The guide will show each of the 70 artworks, information on how the artist created the work (media, etc.) and other information about the artist Other items in the guide will be pages for coloring, and project pages with ideas for recycling

 The guide and exhibition highlights artists and other creative people who have come together from many different countries to work on one universal goal with love and creativity.

We are seeing more and more violence and hate spreading through the world. With all of the  horrifying events in the news, most of the time we never have a chance to recognize and focus on the beautiful things that are part of our extraordinary planet and artworks that are being created by a community united for a common goal. The project highlights the creativity and positive transformation that is changing the world, and teaches how recycling is an important way to contribute to this transformation.  The planet is becoming a world of black or white – we want to turn it into a world of many colors as the artist sees it

A Wheel Within a Wheel

Birds, by Jose Luis De La Barra Bellido, Chosica Lima, Peru

 

Artists from around the world speaking out on environmental issues and the need for recycling.  In this exhibition,

— Some artists concentrated on specific threats to our environment, informing us about such issues as a disease that decimates bee populations and invasive plants that overwhelm nature preserves or clog lakes and rivers

— Some focused on the beauty and fragility of the land — depictions of the landscape and the animals and plants that inhabit it recall nature’s delicate balance

–And other artists  explored the potential of reusing and recycling material —  in their hands, workroom scraps, broken dishes, and even recycled paint became art.

One of the artists represented in the exhibition expresses it best:

“Throughout history, artists have expressed their ideas about the times they lived in. The Landfillart project delivers an important, powerful environmental message about our times through the voice of the artists
Marilyn Chapman from Victoria, BC, Canada
