Hi Desert Nature Museum

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

2018 Exhibition

In today’s era of heightened environmental awareness, artists are increasingly turning to junk stores, trash bins, and surplus outlets to satisfy their urge to create while still caring for the planet. This exhibit is designed to make people rethink our throw-away society by sharing the local community’s innovative and often surprising use of reused and recycled materials.

Community members are invited to contribute original works of art inspired by and made from recycled or reused materials for display in the museum’s annual exhibition, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” which will be especially featured during the Town of Yucca Valley’s Earth Day Celebration on April 21, 2018. Paintings, sculptures, photographs, mixed media and upcycled creations are welcomed. Child, school and club submissions are especially encouraged!
Artwork must be dropped off in person at the Hi-Desert Nature Museum Thursday, March 15th, Friday the 16th, or Saturday the 17th, between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Limit of two (2) works per artist. Larger hanging works shall not exceed a surface area of 12 sq. feet. Artwork will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis until the museum’s temporary gallery is filled. Please ensure that hanging works have proper hanging hardware. Works will only be displayed if they can be easily and safely hung. The museum will not accept works containing nudes, combustible or toxicmaterials, live animal/plant matter, perishable food products, or other harmful items to the museum’s other artifacts or visitors. The Hi-Desert Nature Museum reserves the right to refuse any artwork of questionable nature. Artwork will be available for pickup Thursday, May 24th to Saturday, May 26th, between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Absolutely no exceptions or special accommodations will be made regarding drop-off and pick-up dates. For more information, please call the Hi-Desert Nature Museum at (760) 369-7212 or visit www.HiDesertNatureMuseum.org. The museum is located at 57116 Twentynine Palms Hwy., Yucca Valley, CA 92284.
