Opening Reception: Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 1‐ 6 P.M.

Recycle 2019 – National Juried Art Show

Recycle2019

RECYCLE 2019, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s national juried show of art crafted from cast-off, discarded, and re-purposed materials – is a celebration of ingenuity and imagination.  The show exhibits sophisticated two‐ and three‐ dimensional art created in the re‐use genre; art that demonstrates the importance of conserving our limited natural resources.

Our honored juror is, once again, John Cloud Kaiser,  Director of Education at Materials for the Arts, one of the largest reuse centers in the U.S and a program of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.   BWAC’s curators for Recycle 2019 are Mary Anne Kinsella and Janice Jacob.

$3000 in cash awards will be presented to winners on opening day.

May 11, 2019, with the exhibition on view from May 11 – July 7, 2019.

Gallery Exhibition Dates: Saturday, May 11 – Sunday, July 7, 2019 weekends 1‐ 6 P.M.
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 1‐ 6 P.M.

Bounce by Brittany Baldwin. Presented with New York Cares. Queens Boulevard between Woodhaven Boulevard and 59th Avenue, Queens.

DOT Art collaborates with New York Cares to beautify concrete barriers with bold, colorful murals that are designed by professional artists but painted almost entirely by volunteers. Barriers located along protected bike lanes or active sidewalks become canvases for art. DOT Art provides selected artists with a design honorarium of $2,500 and a materials fee of $500 for stencil production. DOT Art and NY Cares provide paint and associated materials at no cost to the artist. NY Cares coordinates volunteer recruitment and secures volunteers to implement the mural on a single day in fall and spring. Murals remain installed for 11 months.

Submission Deadline: Spring 2019
