Regardless of your political and philosophical views, it’s hard to be against recycling (or, at least, unpopular; just ask Slavoj Žižek). Still, it’s easier to support such efforts than to actively take part in them. Enter Arts Prescott Cooperative Gallery.
Launching March 23 with an artists’ reception during the 4th Friday Art Walk, “The 3 Rs Show: Recycle, Reuse, Reinvent!” features works by local artists who chose to use at least 50 percent recycled materials in their artistic creations. The exhibition showcases reusable materials and/or methods and includes co-op members and more than seven additional local Arizona artists.
So, come see the fruits of these artists’ labors in their attempt to “take on a whole different mission than just using the blue bins each week.” The show runs through April 25, just past Earth Day, April 22.
Visit “The 3 Rs Show: Recycle, Reuse, Reinvent!” at Arts Prescott Cooperative Gallery, 134 S. Montezuma St., 928-776-7717, ArtsPrescott.Com. The artists’ reception and opening is 5-7 p.m. March 23 during the 4th Friday Art Walk.
