ODD Recycled Art Re-Cap & Calls for Recycled Art
The display of recycled art work by Stu Gullstrand (his Clown Mask is pictured above) and Ruby Re-Usable at the Hands On Children’s Museum in Olympia, WA was written about in the Sunday Olympian — read Art Engages Children in Recycling by Molly Gilmore for more info (but since the article did not include pictures, go HERE to see some!)
We posted about our good friend, the amazing Marita Dingus, twice last month (for Black History Month and for her latest public art installation: Recycled Child); NOW we want you to view a video about Children of the Sea, Marita’s recycled art installation at the Douglass Truth Seattle Public Library
Remember when Olympia Dumpster Divers went to Tacoma on Valentine’s Day to see our friend Jenny Fillius’ latest recycled art? Well, Art Zone’s Nancy Guppy also visited the EnviroHouse to see Jenny’s work, and it is the lead story in the 3/5/2010 Art Zone episode

Recycled Art Alphabet Quilt by Ruby Re-Usable
I have just been introduced to your work and your wonderful world because I work (on a smaller scale) with using recycled materials in my kids studios at the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia… and someone sent me your article link.
I AM AN INSTANT FAN of Ruby Re-Usable…I love your wit and brilliant ingenuity…
I immediately posted you into my blog side bar of artists I admire…thank you so much for the level of skill and talent that you are bringing to our beautiful albeit weary with trash world.
Thanks for posting all the call for artists, what a great resource!
thanks for checking out Olympia Dumpster Diver!
