Akron Area Artists!

My sister emailed this to me, and unfortunately I’ll be on a plane at this time going to visit my Dad, but I had to pass on the information! If you heard about it from me and get some great stuff, think of me, maybe grab me something?

ZeroLandfill Akron – 2 More Opportunities for Free Art Supplies

Hello Akron Area Artist,

I wanted to let you know about free art materials available to area artist, art students and arts educators. Saturday, Feb. 21st and 28th from Noon to 4pm at 30 N. High St. next to “City Art on High.” Sponsored by Mocha Maiden Coffee House, Harris/Day Architects and the ZEROLandfill Akron Team.

The award winning ZeroLandfill program provides local artist and arts educators with quality manufactures samples like textiles, carpet & tile flooring, and wallpaper while reducing pressure on local landfill capacity.

The ZeroLandfill Akron Team is reaching out to the Akron area arts community to participate in the pilot project to help determine the feasibility of a longer running program later this year.

See below for more links to more information. I’ve attached parking information just in case you’re not that familiar with downtown parking. Bring boxes and bags and please feel free to forward this email to friends and associates.

Hope to see you there.

Thank you,

Lisa Bostwick

    Thanks for sharing Devona! I got tons of carpet squares, 3 wallpaper books, and fabric samples. I also got a Jillian’s tabletop menu. I’m going to make it into a tabletop photo book!

      That’s great. They’re doing it again this Saturday so I think I might not have missed my chance after all!

      I can’t wait to see what you make with all your loot. šŸ™‚
