Landfill Art!

I've been invited to contribute a piece to the international Landfillart project. A great concept: take stuff from the landfill and create unique art out of it! This is so up my alley! "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."
More specifically, everyone gets a hub cap to create with. After accepting the challenge, mine came in the mail last week. I have a few ideas but nothing too concrete yet. I'll post a link to their website next time around (it seems to be down for now) and also some pix of my hubcap and some design possibilities/trials.

You GO Girl--The project sounds absolutely wonderful. Living here in the SF Bay area where many Burning Man contributors abound I have seen exquisite art coming from salvage art movement. I will be looking forward to what happens with your hubcab.

hugs to ya--Donna
