ReWorks established an art and education program to provide area artists with opportunities to work with reused materials to create art. The program’s goal is to encourage communication through art and to challenge us to reflect on how we manage the materials that surround us on a day to day basis.
Each year a new group of artists is challenged to address a theme around the practices of reducing, reuse, and recycle and work in various mediums to create art to share a message. ReWorks appreciates the efforts and creativity that these participating artists contributed to each project and its message.
