Three Exhibitions Focusing on the Environment

Three new exhibitions that focus on the environment and recycling, and the challenges that face humanity and the planet today.

What Color is Your Dream?

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.

The project celebrates our common love of creativity 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.

On the Road Again

This celebrates America’s love affair with the automobile, and driving,  while highlighting environmental issues and the benefits of recycling.

Like the words from Willy Nelson’s popular song, the exhibition commemorates and celebrates  driving on the “Open Road”.

On the road again
Just can’t wait to get on the road again
The life I love is making music with my friends
And I can’t wait to get on the road again

On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again

“The car has become an article of dress without which we feel uncertain, unclad and incomplete.  Marchall McLuhan, Understanding Media, 1964

A Wheel within a Wheel

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
