ARTISTS HELPING FORESTS

"Summer 2009" Katy Allgeyer Mixed Media on Hubcap
Ken Marquis, founder of the Landfill Art Project sent me an invitation to participate in his artist reclamation venture. I accepted and a few days later a box arrived with a sandblasted hubcap in it. It was a challenge to apply my mixed media maps and acrylics to this slick surface. The project is going to raise both awareness and funds for reforestation through a traveling exhibition and book. I don’t know if my work will be one of the 200 international artists’ work chosen for these, but it was definitely a fun and worthy cause.
