Over the past two years, Spectrum Creative Arts has hosted a community-wide “Eco-Art Challenge” – an innovative art event designed to inspire the local community to look at recycling and sustainability through a creative lens. The premise of the challenge is simple – each year we choose a material that is typically discarded and challenge the local community to use it to make works of art!
We are SO excited to be bringing this event back this Spring with a unique Rochester twist! This year, our show theme is……..(drum roll)……Trash Plates!!
Individuals and artists from all over the Rochester area are invited to create work using a dinner plate as the main surface. Artwork must be comprised of primarily disposable or recyclable materials. Blank plates will be available for pick up at Spectrum Creative Arts, or delivered to you (if transportation is an issue). All materials used must be fully clean and safe for people to interact with in close quarters.
Submissions should be delivered to Spectrum Creative Arts no later than 5pm on Friday, April 14th and must be accompanied by a completed submission form.
The show will culminate with a reception held on Friday, April 21 from 6-8pm at Rookie’s Sports Bar & Grill in Irondequoit. If you have questions or wish to use your own plate, please contact Ben Sheridan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
