Art Club Competition

Posted on 04/25/2017
Art Club competitionArt Club students recently created a masterpiece which involved taking items which would normally be thrown into the garbage and turned it into a Chandelier.  The piece comments on the amount of waste that is produced in food packaging and distribution.  Students collected egg cartons, cut, painted, and strung them up to create a beautiful piece to be submitted into a recycled materials art exhibit.   Out of 450 art pieces submitted to the Metamorphosis exhibition, Art Club students were lucky to be part of the 118 masterpieces accepted into the competition.  We were honored and thrilled to have Chelsea Clinton view our piece during the opening reception this past weekend.  She commented on how impressed she was that students saw trash as an opportunity and a challenge to become better stewards of our community and of our planet.  Although Art Club's piece did not place in the finals, we at Collins are proud of their accomplishments and the environmental awareness to turn one man's trash into another man's treasure.
