What Color is Your Dream?

In the Beginning, by Joanne Honschopp, Cincinnati, Ohi

A playful and learning experience for children about recycling and creativity

Features 70 artists and craftspeople from the LandfillArt Collection that have recycled and transformed discarded wheel covers and hubcaps into  extraordinary and unique artworks.

The  exhibition showcases artists and other creative people who  have come together from many different countries to work on one universal goal with love and creativity — highlighting the positive transformation that is changing the world, and teaching how recycling is an important way to contribute to this transformation.

We are seeing more and more violence and hate spreading through the world, and we rarely have a chance to recognize the beautiful things that are part of our extraordinary planet — the planet has become a world of black and white – and like the artists, we want to change it into a world of many colors.

Educationaal programs include a game, a companion guide highlighting projects and ideas for recycling with pages for coloring  and showing how artists are using recycling and found objects

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
