Artists Work With Recycled Materials

EUGENE, Ore. — Some artists will be showing off their work at the Eugene Celebration this weekend. It’s part of the Object Afterlife Art Challenge Exhibit.

Artists were given mystery materials from the Materials Exchange Center for Community Arts and had two months to create their pieces. Materials included dryer lint, leather scraps, circuit boards and even Barbie torsos.

“It was always so wonderful how varying it was, you know what everyone would create was so different and it was always inspiring. We were pushed to work with something we wouldn’t normally work with,” says Mija Andrade, Executive Director of MECCA.

The artwork will be on display at the Oregon Contemporary Theater. All of the artwork will be judged and some of it will be for sale.
