OKC Beautiful, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the image and appearance of Oklahoma City, hosts their A.R.T. (Art in Recycled Trash) show at SixTwelve, November 6-23! Join us for the opening reception of this show, First Friday, Nov 6 during Paseo's First Friday Art Walk and then come back to see the exhibit throughout the next two weeks.
And educational component for kids will also take place on Saturday, November 14th. More information to follow.
Both two and three-dimensional recycled and upcycled work is eligible. The artwork selected will need to express excep- tional creativity and ingenuity in the reworking of materials and items that would be consid- ered waste. This event is being held in celebration of America Recycles Day on November 15th, 2015. America Recycles Day (ARD) is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting recycling programs in the United States.
OKC Beautiful retains their mission through programs that advocate beautification efforts, educate the public on the environment, create awareness of city ordinances, and improve public lands. Through programs such as Adopt-A-Park, LandScapes, LitterBlitz, Mother Earth and Wildflowers, OKC Beautiful provides a clean and beautiful city. We believe the improved appearance for our city directly impacts its economic viability as well as affect- ing the quality of life and self-image of its residents.
