Olympic Mills Building 107 SE Washington Portland, Ore. On Display Through July 16th
Announcing The Second Annual Recycled Rain Project! The show kicks off June, 1st at 6pm and is on display through July 13, 2013.
Over a period of 30 days over 25 local artists create original works using only collected rainwater. The subject matter in the paintings is varied. The overall concept is to expose new and upcoming local artists while highlighting simple ways we can rethink the way we use water.
Twenty percent of the sale of all works are donated to a water-based charity. The 2013 Recycled Rain Project is donating funds to www.water.org
a nonprofit organization that transforms communities by providing access to safe water and sanitation.
The Recycled Rain Project is dedicated to raising awareness of the many water-related issues that are taking place abroad as well as in our own backyards.
This year we are thrilled to annouce an addition to the show. RAINDROPS!
a children's gallery will make it's debut during RR2013. Artists from
The Recycled Rain Project will be teaching a class of young artists through Art(s)Cool
about the necessity of water. These young 'RainDrops'
will then create some Recycled Rain art of their own to be included in the show.
In the long term, we would like to have this project is to continue to expand as an annual event in Portland and eventually expand to other cities across the United States.
