I can see SCOCO hosting a huge recycled sculpture contest each year as another fun fundraising activity. Main Street WC, City Park in WC, Todos Santos Plaza in Concord ... somewhere open and showy. Concord would love an event like this. Like the Recycled Fashion Show, once we have a location, all we'd really need is prize money. Charge a reasonable registration fee, let people sell their works at the event. Add some music and fun categories (e.g. kinetic) ... I think this type of event would really catch on. And it'd be a great venue for public education.
FYI - the short film that we saw at the March (?) Green Rheem of artistic images of our wasted products really sets the stage for how to engage the public in the enormity of the problem.
Anyone interested in volunteering to help with the Recycled Sculpture Contest or the Recycled Fashion Show should contact Mark.

Have you seen the very big and very cool recycled sculptures made by Patrick Amiot, the famous artist in Sebastapol? Imagine these at Todos Santos Plaza ...
