‘Reduce, Reuse, Re-Imagine’ exhibition in Santa Clara

June 25, 2013 by  

The issue of reducing waste and recycling is one that is going to come even more to the forefront in the future as awareness increases. Santa Clara University in California is leading the way in providing a friendly way to bring information to people of all ages in novel and innovative ways. The hope is that in the future people will be more active in attempting to manage the limited resources that are present on the earth.

The Santa Clara University is funding the ‘Reduce, Reuse, Re-Imagine’ exhibit, which opens at The de Saisset Museum on the 16th of August and runs through to the 6th of December. The exhibition is made up of works from ten different artists, some of who are already established in their own right, while others are students at the university.

The artists have gone out and collected unwanted items from the waste-stream. Items that other people had decided were no longer useful for anything have been rescued and turned into pieces of artwork that are not only beautiful in nature, but that also have a strong message behind them.

Local printers may provide the communication materials to promote participation. Flyer printing can be used for any quantity needed for distribution throughout the region or direct mailed.

This exhibition is suitable for all ages and will provide an opportunity for residents to raise awareness of how sustainable changes can be made in personal lives and communities to provide for the future.
