Keep It Out of the Cart - Art Details

October 2019

“Keep It Out of the Cart - Art” is a project that had artists take materials that had unfortunately made their way into our recycling stream and create a piece of art to bring awareness to those materials that do not belong in curbside recycling, i.e. contamination.

Artists were given a mystery box of ACTUAL contamination that was removed from our local recycling facility from which to create their work. The artist was free to utilize and to interpret the materials as he or she saw fit. Additionally, artists were provided time to work on their projects at the Akron Makerspace.

The work is now part of a traveling exhibition that will be held at different libraries throughout Summit County.  For the month of October 2019, it is at the Akron/Main Branch of the Akron-Summit County Public Library.  For hours and directions to the library, please visit here.
