Turning rusted Garbage into Fine Art

Landfillart is an international effort encompassing
one-thousand-forty-one (1,041) artists to claim a piece of rusted
metal garbage and create fine art.

I learned of this project from an artist (Helen Meyers) who is currently in a group
exhibition with me and I am so excited to be part of the reclamation art project.

The reclaimed hubcap (aka 'metal canvas') is on its way to me right now. Can't wait to see it and get inspired for the painting. 200 of the 1041 hubcaps will tour nationally and inspire other groups to also get involved with the reclamation project. Currently there are two museums that have already expressed interest in the project.

Great project and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.
