Several years ago, I participated in a volunteer artist call by The LandFillArt Project. They sent me a reclaimed hubcap off an old car, I did my magic on it and sent it back. I love the idea of using recycled, upsourced, and repurposed materials whenever I can.
I called her Landfill Princess. She was in an online exhibition at LandFillArt.org and that’s the last I heard of her . . . until today.
The exhibition will open September 7, 2014, at The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV), in Winchester, Virginia, USA, and be on exhibit through March 1, 2015.
Mine is one of 287 objects selected out of more than 1,000 artworks now in the Landfillart Collection. The exhibition presents work from artists in every U.S. state and 35 other countries.
The dense, visually exciting installation has a strong environmental message and will incorporate WASTE NOT from the Green Revolution “eco-zibit,” which is based on an exhibition originally created by the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, and its Black Creativity Council and made available by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
