James Harithas explains the art car phenomenon which we display in our flash site.
Susan Subtle has curated two ground-breaking sites on unusual art made from recycled materials. The first show, which
travelled the country, was "Hello Again." It opened at the Oakland Museum in 1998.
The second show, "Return Emgagement,
Engagement,' an exhibition of recycled art made out of food containers and
packaging and kitchen appliances opened at the Copia: The American Center for Wine, Food and the Arts ,
in September 2002.
The goal is to interest those not already
converted to recycling as well as entertain and educate further the experienced recycler. Because of its emphasis on art and the unusual, we expect the site to
have a wider appeal and to attract more than just the usual folks
interested in recycling. Where else will you see a slide show of real houses made of beer cans, newspaper, or hub caps?
Marilyn von Robot, our animated hostess , attracts and demands
attention! Marilyn is irresistible. She also leads our visitors through our extensive store of recycled art for sale.
