RECYCLE YOUR ART OUT!
PUBLIC INVITED TO FIRST EXHIBIT OF STUDENT SCULPTURES
Five (5) Haywood County Schools will exhibit their new “environmental art” sculptures using recyclable litter as their material. The art classes of Pisgah High, Tuscola High and Bethel, Canton and Waynesville Middle Schools will have their Grand Opening Exhibit on Tuesday, December 1st at 5:30 p.m. in the Waynesville Town Hall lobby (the Police Station building) at 9 South Main Street.
Everyone is invited to this reception to view this highly novel artwork of the students and to have refreshments.
Titled RECYCLE YOUR ART OUT, this artistic display of environmental stewardship is sponsored by the Commission For a Clean County (CCC), Haywood County’s land-based environmental group. The CCC presented the “Litter Troll” program to the kindergarten and first grades for the last three years.
The rules governing the building of the “litter” sculptures were:
- Sculptures must be large enough to be easily viewed. They may be lifesize.
- Sculptures must be able to fit into a pick-up truck for transportation.
- Most of the building material must come from the environment, if at all possible from litter students pick up. If not possible, recycled materials from home or school will do.
- Although most of the sculptures must be of recyclable material, other necessary materials, such as wire frames, are acceptable.
- Sculptures may be free-standing or wall-mounted.
- Sculptures should be vertical, if possible, as vertical sculptures are easier to review than horizontal ones.
Participation Awards of hand-made plaques, crafted from recycled barn wood, will be presented to each participating art class by the CCC.
After this initial Grand Opening at the Waynesville Town Hall, the sculptures will be exhibited at the Waynesville Public Library, as well as at locations in Canton, Clyde and Maggie Valley.
