Are you an artist that uses recycled material and/or renewable energy sources for your works of art?
Yes! Then think Columbus GreenSpot!
Art and sustainability are natural partners. Whether using recycled materials, repurposed materials, or using renewable energy to power an art piece- the materials are there. So let’s partner up!
Artists, here is your opportunity to be spotted in the green. Check out our flyer or see below.
Here is how it works:
1. Create your unique, original work of art that uses recycled material and/or renewable energy.
2. Take pictures of your art piece from all angles (minimal 4).
3. Email GreenSpot@columbus.gov
4. GreenSpot will review and then post the images to GreenSpot social media (Facebook, Twitter, website).
Did you know?
This project is to encourage art works that use recycled and/or repurposed material. Did you know that every year, the SWACO landfill disposes of nearly a million tons of waste? Yet 70% of this could be diverted through reuse, recycling, composting and other methods. Demonstrating that materials can be reused for other purposes can raise awareness with the public. Reducing the amount of materials that end up in the landfill can extend the life of the landfill as well as our natural resources.
Check out the Kiggins Collection that uses recycled metals. The Rita Fuller-Yates piece uses recycled pallets (learn more about that here.
