"Gogh Big" Recycle project

Artisan Corner - Work Skills Team

"Gogh Big" is a collaboration artwork by artisans searching for inclusion within the art community who were looking for a large project that would make an impact both locally and globally. Locally we were able to source over 10,000 pop caps & buttons that were meant for the landfill and create this beautiful homage to Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Starry Night". Repurposing and recycling plastics can help the world on a global level. Once we started asking for caps/buttons well over 400K were donated! Artisans with diverse backgrounds & all levels of ability created this project, and with all of the extra caps that were donated we will be making more large works to help repurpose plastic & keep it out of our landfills & oceans for some time to come. More info: Facebook at www.facebook.com/ArtisanCorner/ Our exceptional staff, creative team, volunteers, and community all came together to provide the supplies and support needed for this amazing project and WE THANK YOU ALL!
