The festival showcases artwork made of recycled materials and aims to educate and excite Clark County residents about waste reduction, reuse and recycling
VANCOUVER – The Recycled Arts Festival is bringing the spirit of the annual event into Clark County homes with a video series showcasing local artists and virtual kid-friendly crafting event.
The popular Clark County Recycled Arts Festival is known for its eclectic vibe. The festival showcases artwork made of recycled materials and aims to educate and excite Clark County residents about waste reduction, reuse and recycling.
The “Meet the Artist” video series celebrates creative reuse of local artists. Thirteen recycled-materials artists opened their studio doors for an insider look at how and why they use recycled materials to create distinctive works of art. Find the video series on the Recycled Arts Festival website beginning Sat., Aug. 7.
More than 130 artists are featured on the Recycled Arts Festival website’s vendor listing. They sell items such as metal and glass garden art, sculptures, mosaics, jewelry, clothing, furniture and wall art. Items are made with a minimum of 75 percent recycled content and are sure to inspire everyone to see things they may consider as trash in a new way.
The Recycled Arts Festival is also hosting a kid-friendly virtual event, “Let’s Craft Together!” The event is 6-7 p.m. Mon., Aug. 9. In addition to celebrating the release of the “Meet the Artist” video series, attendees will be guided through creative crafts using commonly trashed items. To close, there will be a show and tell opportunity for imaginative children and adults to share recycled crafts they have created in the past.
