ARTISTS WANTED for Environmental Learning Center www.discoverelc.org
TWO OPPORTUNITIES FOR A GREAT CAUSE!
FIRST Wintergreen Night Lights - Recycled Plastics Project
The Environmental Learning Center would like to invite members of the Vero Beach Art Club to create works of art from recycled plastics for display and sale in the Tidal Gallery and picturesque spots on their campus.
The theme for the work is lagoon focused (animals, plants and their estuary), materials are at the discretion of the artists as long as they use recycled plastic in the design and composition of the piece. We will display pieces in our Tidal Gallery and include cards that list the title of the piece, the artist and the price (if the item is for sale). We also have areas on campus that could hold sculptures and pieces that can be displayed outdoors. Sculptures as well as wall art are encouraged, however artists will be asked to assist in placement of very large or very heavy pieces.
The works of art will be on display starting with their Wintergreen Night Lights Celebration (Dec. 27-30th) and continuing through the month of January at our Tidal Gallery and include cards that list the title of the piece, the artist and the price (if the item is for sale).
DROP OFF: Monday, December 17, 2018 9:00am - 1:00pm at the Environmental Learning Center - 255 Live Oak Drive off the 510 Wabasso Bridge. A member of the staff will be available in the Welcome Center to accept the artwork and it will be installed by close of business that day, either in the Tidal Gallery, or in protected spaces throughout campus.
PICK UP: Monday, January 28, 2019 9:00am - 1:00pm
If you have any questions you may contact Bev Shea at 772-589-5050 Ext 101 or by email at: Bev@DiscoverELC.org
Another way members can get involved is helping 4th & 5th grade Environmental Ambassadors with creating a poster or work of art that expresses how they are involved in recycling, reusing, and reducing plastics.
The group effort will also be on display during the Wintergreen Night Lights Celebration at the Environmental Learning Center.
Contact Club Vice President Camy De Mario if you are interested in this second opportunity:
