Happy Earth Day 2012
We visited ATHICA for their most recent art exhibit, Upcycle. It was Earth Day, so we had a good time looking at local art made from recycled and unsuspecting materials.
This camper made by the Cap Man was really neat. I especially liked the pink flamingos and flowers - the centers of the flowers happen to be bottle caps, too!
These birds and flowers were cut from vinyl records.
Inside these juice bottle caps were individual miniature paintings. This was my favorite installation of the whole exhibit. I love miniature artwork, and each of these contained a beautiful painting.
Another part of the art opening was the Trashion Fashion Show. It was a great mix of materials made into wearable and not-so-wearable fashions. Just like Project Runway!
Happy Earth Day!
