Prescott Creeks is looking for artists and other creative folks to turn creek trash into art. As part of an effort to bring awareness to the amount and types of trash pulled out of our area creeks and lakes during the annual Granite Creek Cleanup, and to keep some of that trash out of the waste stream, Prescott Creeks is working to have as much of the materials found during the Cleanup upcycled into art.
In the past five years of Prescott Creeks organizing the annual Granite Creek Cleanup we have seen consistently large amounts of trash removed from our creeks and lakes. This year we will separate true-trash from potential upcycle-able art supplies to be used by community members. The art will then be displayed as part of an exhibit, culminating in an art auction and wine-tasting event. Our goal is to create recognition (or awareness) and conversation in our community about the amount and type of trash that is ending up in the local system of creeks and lakes.
This show is an educational outreach to benefit and support the conservation and community educational activities of Prescott Creeks. Your art will bring attention to the types of trash found in our creeks and lakes, and promote recycling and resource conservation.
Thank you for considering being involved in One Man’s Treasure. Your involvement helps to support Prescott Creeks’ mission to promote, protect and celebrate the ecological integrity of riparian systems and associated wetlands in the central Arizona watersheds through conservation, restoration and education.
