Rutherford Visual Arts Guild Partners with the Town to promote Recycling through Art!

This show is in partnership with the Rutherford County Visual Arts Guild to create awareness around the Town's curbside recycling program while also dressing up the downtown area. The idea…to bring the town’s recycling bins to life!

Artists will receive a primed recycling trash can as their canvas. The challenge in this contest is to create something that is both artistic and contains the recycling symbol. Although the entire project does not have to be recycling focused, the recycling symbol has to appear in a prominent place on the artwork so that it is apparent the can is for recycling and not trash.  Sign up today by visiting the Visual Arts Center in downtown Rutherfordton or email them at
