Is it trash or is it art?

Screen the Meet the Artist video series, starting online August 7th, 2021 — featuring artists from the hippest, most eco-conscious festival in all of Clark County. See how people, just like you, are giving new life to old items that would otherwise have been buried in a landfill. While we won't be putting on the live festival at Esther Short Park this year, we are putting together video studio tours with some of our artists, giving you an in-depth look at how they turn found and recycled materials into beautiful art! We'll also be adding some new artist info and recycled arts educational information to our site, so you can find some of your favorite artists from past years, and discover some new creations you may not have seen before!

giraffeThe Procession of the Species is an annual Recycled Arts Festival tradition, celebrating our community and the natural world through art. Participants of all ages joined in the parade dressed as a favorite plant or animal species, or natural element. The Procession paraded through the 2019 festival on Sunday, June 30. The Procession culminated in a costume contest on the main stage. We hosted costume workshops weekly in June where we provided all of the materials and supplies needed to up-cycle and create an amazing costume.
