The Art of Recycling: The Coolest Show in Town
August 25, 2008 - September 2, 2008
Students, institutions, utility companies, private organizations, and individual artists from across the country have decorated refrigerators or refrigerator doors for the exhibition. Up to three winning entries will be selected by a panel of distinguished judges and identified during the exhibition. Visitors to The Art of Recycling can also join the fun and vote for their favorite "Viewer's Choice" refrigerator art, with all winners recognized at a celebration event on September 2. In addition to the refrigerator art, videos created for the complementary "Recycle My Old Fridge Online Video Challenge" will be aired for the duration of the exhibition.
You can also learn about fridges from early Egyptian days to today's modern, energy-efficient ENERGY STAR® qualified models! Labor Day is your last chance to see the refrigerator art exhibition and vote for your favorite, so don't miss the opportunity to take friends and family to see it-and cool down with some ice cream! Edy's will be providing free ice cream outside the Museum on September 1, while supplies last.
