SNOWFLAKES, RECYCLING INSPIRE NEWEST COMMUNITY ART COLLABORATION AT PRICE CENTER
The individuality, beauty, and temporary nature of snowflakes contrasted against the near permanence and potential “ugliness” of recyclable waste materials will serve as the theme to inspire creators of all ages and types to participate in the latest community art collaboration presented by the Price Center’s Arts Committee. Snowflakes created from recycled and recyclable materials will be hung together for a public display at the Center during the upcoming holiday and early winter season.
"As we all know, no two snowflakes are alike and each one is beautiful in its own way,” said Arts Committee member Garrie Borden. “That’s why we want to encourage everyone in the community, young and old, and especially those who have never exhibited art, to contribute a hand-made snowflake to add to our display," she added.
Up to two snowflakes may be submitted per creator. The more unique the better. Original creations may not exceed 24” x 24.” Ideally, snowflakes should be lightweight and include a hook or loop for hanging. Eligible snowflakes must include some form of recycled materials. The snowflakes will serve as a companion to a new gallery show, “The Gift of Art” that will hang throughout the Center Dec. 4 through Jan. 8, 2022.
Snowflake creations will be accepted daily at the Center through Sat., Dec. 4. The display will be available to view beginning the following week.
Rotating Art Shows and community art collaborations are created, curated, and conducted by the Price Center Arts Committee and funded in part through a grant from the San Marcos Arts Commission.
