Landfillart.org: An Artist Reclamation Project
These incredibly varied works of art are just a few out of over 1000 re-purposed hubcaps submitted to Landfillart.org over the last few years as part of an international initiative to combine art practice and environmental awareness. The website’s gallery of “metal canvases” boasts a broad spectrum of media and styles from participating artists as it continues to form a large creative community of both art-makers and lovers.
According to the website, the first public exhibition of these works is scheduled for September 2014. And while it is unclear whether new submissions will be considered for this show itself, it looks like the initiative is still accepting applications to contribute to the online gallery. You can see the entire collection here, and keep up to date on the project here.
