The large-scale, outdoor eco-festival and exposition called The New World F.E.S.T. to be held in Santa Monica the week of Oct. 7-9 has announced it will feature a one-of-a-kind exhibition entitled “Sustainable Art.”
More than 30 leading artists from a variety of disciplines will showcase their work.
All work embraces the tenets of sustainability via the use of repurposed and recycled objects and green materials. Many artists will be creating new works live.
“We’re thrilled to be able to share these environmentally and socially conscious works with the New World F.E.S.T audience,” said the exhibition’s curator Randi Kreeft. “The art is amazing to behold, and presents a thought-provoking testament of our world and its constant transformation. Watching artists turn societal discards and waste into beauty is quite inspiring.”
Artists will personally conduct interactive workshops and seminars, and there will be a children’s art station offering interactive experiences for kids.
And – musician Lonnie Marshall (Weapon of Choice, P-Funk, Fishbone, Red Hot Chili Peppers) will showcase his latest project The Lil’ Big Ups, an exciting and unique band comprised of children playing instruments formed from ordinary household trash. Also performing on the Sustainable Art stage will be artist and world beatbox champion, Adam Matta.
