Sustainability guru Kate Weiner ’15 wants you to turn trash into rad art:
Got toilet paper rolls?
Milk cartons? Egg cartons?
Turn your old recyclables into beautiful works of art at the WesSustainability’s first Recycled Art Competition. This event, in conjunction with the Office of Sustainability and the College of the Environment, will be one of the first Earth- related events of Earth Week. At our table by the Wesleyan Farmer’s Market, you will have the opportunity to build sculptures and costumes out of recycled materials. Building tools will be provided, so all you need to bring is your creativity! Finished pieces will be displayed around campus.
We encourage RA’s and HM’s to participate in the competition as a hall/house program.
Though we will provide some collected recyclables, we could always use more. Feel free to save recyclables throughout the week and bring them to the event.
