Events for Sunday July 25, 2021

The Junkyard Art Exhibition, Hopewell Valley Arts Council

Sunday July 25, 2021
11:00 AM - 6:00 PM

The Junkyard, an upcycle art exhibition, hosted by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, will prove once and for all that "one man's trash is another man's treasure". Artists' creations will transform Woolsey Park into a temporary sculpture garden from Friday, July 23 to Sunday, July 25, reimaging trash into art -- like plastic bottles, metal tools and nails, Styrofoam, wood pallets, discarded books, car parts. The event will feature artwork by established professional and eco-artists as well as by teams/families who take on the challenge of competing to create upcycled artwork. For those in the market, the artwork and other hand-crafted items will be available for purchase.

The Junkyard will also highlight "green" education with useful and educational environmentally-related displays, as well as an array of expertly restored antique vehicles.

Open for one weekend only, the Junkyard celebrates creativity while raising awareness about the need to reduce in our throw-away culture and rethink disposability by upcycling, prolonging these items' usefulness and diverting them from a landfill. Hours: Fri 7/23 - 6pm to 8pm (last entry at 7:30pm); Sat 7/24 -11am to 8pm (last entry at 7:30pm); and Sun 7/25 - 11am to 6pm (last entry at 5:30pm). Tickets: $15 Adults / $10 Seniors (65+) / $5 Kids (up to 18) / Strollers free For tickets or more info go to www.hvartscouncil.org/thejunkyard
