Recycled Art Chronicles: Rich Art
Dan Schreiber of Centralia’s The Chronicle visited with our favorite visionary artist Richard Tracy, aka Rich Art, recently. Ruby read about it in The Olympian, but Dan also produced a great video of Rich Art that not only follows him around his Art Yard, greeting visitors and talking about art, it also shows Rich Art on his bicycle, making his rounds to junk yards and dumpsters, foraging for raw materials that must be $5 or under (it did not catch him at the Centralia Goodwill, but we do know that he searches there, too). Every time we visit with Rich Art, we discover more to love! Admire more Rich Art HERE and HERE
I love your blog! It’s so exciting to see so many people working with reuse in such creative ways. I too am a dumpster diver out here in the midwest, it’s amazing what people throw away!
thanks, Melissa, for posting about Olympia Dumpster Divers on your blog and for leaving a nice (non-spam) comment here; go, garbloggers and other dumpster divers, go!
