Recycled Art on Display in F.C. Arts & Clean Coast Show

The Clean Coast Project, a local non-profit, will co-host its premiere sculpture show of art made from recycled materials in collaboration with Falls Church Arts. An opening reception is scheduled for Thursday at 7 p.m. at ArtSpace Falls Church.

The show displays sculptures built by Clean Coast artists including local resident Jen Driggers. Andres Saavedra and others from the group contributed to create life-size human forms constructed over a two-month period from recycled plastic. These artists began the Clean Coast Project while students at George Mason University.

Independent videos and short presentations will also be featured throughout the evening focusing on important data about recycling at George Mason University and the City of Falls Church. Falls Church Arts, the City of Falls Church, the Falls Church Humanities Council, TMP Pearson Square, LLC, Bozzuto Management Co., and Creative Cauldron all cooperated to obtain space enabling this artwork to be constructed and presented to the public. Falls Church Arts will also be having another recycling event, with ECO ART show this coming March.

ArtSpace Falls Church is located at 410 S. Maple Ave., Falls Church. For more information, visit
