We’re happy to announce that this will be the 8th annual Recycled Arts Resource Expo! RARE provides a platform for eco-friendly artists to showcase their art created from recycle materials. RARE also promotes art organizations and facilities that incorporate sustainability in their facilities and programs. One of our main objectives for this event is to educate the community on the role that the arts can play in the sustainability movement.

This year’s RARE event will provide an entertaining array of events, as well as hosting a strong program of educational workshops, speakers, panel discussions, exhibits and booths. We invite Exhibiting artists, Art booths, Performers, Presenters & Class Instructors with a passion for art created from recycled materials to become a part of RARE. Attendees are inspired to take home innovative ideas that recognize the value of using resources creatively.

RARE is made possible by many generous business partners.

Exhibits and Activities

In response to the COVID 19 outbreak, we’ve decided not to schedule any events associated with RARE this year. The exhibit will still happen with the artists listed, and our gallery will still be open with limited staff and hours. We hope to add some digital programming via social media and/or our website, so stay tuned for that!

Thank you for another great year! Your attendance, participation and membership helps keep events like RARE coming back year after year. Below you can view a summary of last years RARE event.
