Additionally, the event will include original artwork by Joan Bixler (Joan Bixler Studios), Jne Jacques (Studio Jacques), and Tracie Weir (Studio Artistica) created with with house paint waste collected from Yuck Old Paint. There will also be a cash bar with beer and wine and light refreshments. This event is being held in celebration of America Recycles Day. Thanks to Yuck Old Paint and PIKE3400 for partnering with us on this event.

Suggested donation $10.
Note that our three-day pop-up event presenting artists and their original “eco” art and a recycled art zone originally scheduled for November 13 to 15 has been postponed. ACE’s ecoPOP series will continue in 2016 with more events. Check back for details on where we’ll be popping up next.
