Princeton NJ – The Arts Council of Princeton will host an exhibition, June 12-26, 2015, featuring artwork from Trash ArtStravaganza, a sustainability art contest held annually during Communiversity. An opening reception will take place at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon St., from 4-6 p.m. Friday, June 12.

The entries — which represent three age categories from young children through adults — range from beautiful dresses and jewelry fashioned from trash and recycled materials to elaborate and whimsical sculptures and multimedia pieces to a fantastical city of trash figurines, vehicles and dwellings. The exhibition honors participants of Trash ArtStravaganza for their sustainable practice in the creation of art.

The grand prizewinner, Puttita Sae-Wang, an 11-year-old Lawrence Township resident who designed a two-piece dress from cinched, fringed and ruffled newspaper, donated her $1,000 award to the Princeton Junior School, a non-profit organization. Sae-Wang’s entry will be highlighted during the Trash Art Exhibition.

Trash ArtStravaganza is a grassroots organization sponsored by Princeton University. Its objective is to raise awareness for non-profit organizations that work to sustain the earth’s environment and communities.
