Recycle your art out!

Five Haywood County Schools will exhibit their new “environmental art” sculptures using recyclable litter as their material. The art classes of Pisgah High, Tuscola High and Bethel, Canton and Waynesville Middle Schools will have their Grand Opening Exhibit at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1, in the Waynesville Town Hall lobby (the Police Station building) on Main Street.

Everyone is invited to this reception to view this highly novel artwork of the students and to have refreshments. Titled “Recycle your art out,” this artistic display of environmental stewardship is sponsored by the Commission For a Clean County (CCC), Haywood County’s land-based environmental group. 

After this initial Grand Opening at the Waynesville Town Hall, the sculptures will be exhibited at the Waynesville Public Library, as well as at locations in Canton, Clyde and Maggie Valley.
