Join Us for Our Second Saturday Art Walk :: Saturday, April 12, 2008 :: 7-10pm
Do Your Part to Save Mother Earth !
The artwork in our "FOUND" show exemplifies a state of mind -- a way of looking at an "obsolete" object from a new perspective and reinterpreting it so that it transcends its original and no longer valid function. Our FOUND artists have transformed the ordinary into the beautiful. They've collected discarded resources-- used, abandoned or recovered materials, and given them another life. Our delight in FOUND art is in the PROMISE it communicates. The results entertain us with newfound ENERGY and FLAIR!
In keeping with many EARTH DAY celebrations around Los Angeles, we invite you to see recycling in action. Over 30 artists have joined to demonstrate use of wood, paper, cardboard, newspaper, plastic, glass, tile, metal, aluminum, steel, concrete, wire, toys and more. Come see how our FOUND artists have transformed objects discarded as waste and saved them from becoming landfill.
