Plan Creatively Now for WNC Recycled Arts Show

Participants in the 13th annual Western Nevada College Recycled Art Show should begin rummaging and thinking creatively now to prepare their entries for the 2008 show. The popular contest, featuring "objects d'art" that have been previously used for something else, will move its deadlines to an earlier date than in past years. Entries will be accepted Monday-Thursday, Feb. 25-28, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Bristlecone Building Main Information Desk.

The object of the contest is to illustrate the phrase, "One person's trash is another person's treasure." Each year, more than 50 students and local artists use their talent, imagination and cast-off items to create fascinating and creative paintings, sculptures and oft-indescribable works of art.

The contest is open to WNC students, staff and everyone in the community.
Entrants must use recycled materials and all 2D objects must be fitted with wire or string so they can be hung on a wall. Beyond that, anything goes!

Cash prizes will be awarded for Best of Show ($100), Most Creative ($75), and Most Useful ($50). The top three places and honorable mentions will be awarded at an artists' reception on Friday, April 4, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

If space permits, all entries will be displayed March 3-April 4 at WNC's College Gallery in the Bristlecone Building, 2201 West College Parkway.
