The Junkyard, an upcycle art exhibition, hosted by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, will prove once and for all that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Artists’ creations will transform Woolsey Park into a temporary sculpture garden from Friday, July 23 to Sunday, July 25, reimaging trash into art — like plastic bottles, metal tools and nails, Styrofoam, wood pallets, discarded books, car parts.
The event will feature artwork by established professional and eco-artists as well as by teams/families who take on the challenge of creative upcycled artwork. The Junkyard will also highlight “green” education with useful and educational environmentally-related displays. And for those who are in the market for a little something, there will be vendors selling artisan and environmentally-related items. Just added: car show! Junk and car enthusiasts will enjoy checking out the Junkyard’s Antique Car Show.
The FIVE ZONES of the Junkyard:
Zone 1: Creative Team Competition
Zone 2: EcoArtist Gallery & Marketplace
Zone 3: The Kids Gallery
Zone 4: Local “Green” Educational Resources
Zone 5: Antique Car Show
Open for one weekend only, the Junkyard celebrates creativity while raising awareness about the need to reduce in our throw-away culture and rethink disposability by upcycling, prolonging these items’ usefulness and diverting them from a landfill.
