Upcycle Art Project

Calling All Artists

The Upcycle Art Project intends to challenge artists to take materials that are no longer in use and give them a second life and new function as a piece of art. By supporting artists who work with recycled materials, ReWorks hopes to encourage people to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials and promote new ways of thinking about art and the environment.
