MAY 17, 2014 – JULY 20, 2014

From May 17 through July 20, the Child HELP Foundation Gallery will be transformed into the R³ Factory providing a designated space for recycling-related activities. The R³ Factory will provide visitors with the opportunity to view recycling-themed art installations, participate in a variety of hands-on activities using recycled materials, and view an award winning documentary about a contemporary artist whose art is inspired by the world’s largest landfill. Four artist installations will provide visitors with the opportunity to view four different interpretations of recycling and art and participate in their completion by adding materials available in the R³ Factory.

Visitors to the R³ Factory will be encouraged to vote on the installation that most inspires them to get involved in recycling. Votes will be accepted at the museum, on the Biggs Museum website and on the Biggs Museum’s Facebook page from May 17 to July 20.
