A uniquely creative and unprecedented event united artists, parents and children of our community in the back parking lot of Project Maté Bar, located at the edge of ARTISTS ALLEY on Sunday, January the 6th. The concept behind the afternoon festivity was gathering recycled materials and transforming the items, otherwise useless and on their way to a landfill, into pieces of artwork using creativity and imagination. The finished collaboration of this fun-filled afternoon is an impressive installation showing aquatic themed creations, all made of everyday household refuse. The participating children became immediately inspired and created their own creations using clay, beads, paints and cardboard … What a great way to utilize things we discard for a new purpose! The installation is available for viewing at the east side of the building located at 314 NE 4th Street @ ARTISTS ALLEY.
