We all know entertainment could be better and the Junk Art Scramble could be part of a movement to get positive, art and environment related programming in front of the people who would enjoy it. Unfortunately, most content distributors won’t talk to a production company without an agent. :-(
But there’s something we can do about that, and that’s GET an agent. Numbers will help with that. If we get enough people checking out our site here and viewing our videos on YouTube and talking with us and other people on our FB page, we can demonstrate that good content can be popular content, too.
So if you like our concept of a show about art and upcycling – having fun while doing good – view our vids, like our FB page and ask your friends to do the same.
PS: You can always find the video by clicking on the link under “Special For You”!
Imagine if the whaling ship in Moby Dick were actually a möbius strip. That’s what Tim Hawkinson has done using mixed media, including found objects and twist-ties in this piece that is on display at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. It’s a stunning idea, executed brilliantly.

Last Friday we held a sort of treasure map/scavenger hunt poetry clue contest and the clues must have been hard, ’cause no one guessed that Team Tannery and Team Cabrillo’s finished sculptures are now installed in downtown Santa Cruz, CA at the Rittenhouse Building (the Ritt), where they will stay for the next couple of months.
If you plan to be in the Santa Cruz area, take a swing by there and see what was inspired by the late Morton Marcus’s poem, “The Construction.”
As a treat for those of you who can’t see the sculptures in person, take a look at this amusing short film which won a contest for combining art and recycling for the University of North Carolina’s Recycling Dept.:
We’ve been running a kind of virtual scavenger/treasure hunt on our FB page, allowing people to guess where Team Tannery and Team Cabrillo’s Junk Art Scramble artworks will be displayed for the next couple of months.
The guessing game ends today, but you still have time to make your guesses by heading over to our Facebook page!
We’re also glad to announce our first sponsor: Goodwill Industries! Go Green – Go Goodwill!
