2021 Recycled Arts Festival "Meet the Artist" Video Series
The Recycled Arts Festival has brought the spirit of the annual event into Clark County homes with a video series showcasing local artists. Known for its eclectic vibe, it is dubbed the "hippest, most eco-conscious" festival in the region. Artists display creations made of items that would have otherwise gone to the landfill to educate and excite Clark County residents about waste reduction, reuse and recycling.
The "Meet the Artist" video series celebrates creative reuse of local artists. Thirteen recycled-materials artists opened their studio doors for an insider look at how and why they use recycled materials to create distinctive works of art.
More than 130 artists are featured on the Recycled Arts Festival website's vendor listing. They sell items such as metal and glass garden art, sculptures, mosaics, jewelry, clothing, furniture and wall art made with a minimum of 75% recycled content.
