As part of its recycling education efforts serving the Tucson-Pima County metropolitan area, Tucson Clean & Beautiful invites students in grades K-12 as well as adults who are professional or aspiring recycled artists, to participate in the RUMBA (Re-Used Materials Becoming Art) showcase and competition to be held at the 2011 SAHBA Spring Home & Patio Show in April.
Registration ends March 25.
Individuals of all ages and artistic abilities, school classrooms/clubs, and organizations are invited to enter recycled art for display. K-12 student entries will be selected to receive special prizes and certificates. All entries by adults or youth will receive a certificate of participation.
RUMBA creations must be three-dimensional, no larger than 2 feet by 3 feet to fit on tables, or larger pieces that can be freestanding. Any previously used materials can be used to make the recycled art. Scraps of plastic, paper, wood, metal, old toys and parts of broken things are the foundation for this type of art.
To obtain a RUMBA registration form, visit www.tucsoncleanandbeautiful.org or call 791-5000.
