Call for Artists


The Hopewell Valley Arts Council seeks artists, artisans, and all creatives to rise to the challenge of our newest community event — The Junkyard – an upcycle art exhibition. 


      • Team Challenge participants who will compete against other teams to create four (4) imaginative upcycled items specified by the HV Arts Council;

      • Established artists to display artwork and sculpture made primarily from upcycled items; and

      • Youth artists to create three (3) upcycled items specified by the HV Arts Council.

The Junkyard will be open to the public from Friday, July 23 to Sunday, July 25 at Woolsey Park in Titusville, NJ (Hopewell Township) and will feature artwork created by Team Challenge participants and established professional and eco-artists who will create art, musical instruments, sculptures and more from mostly… junk, of course! Additional features include environment-related educational displays, and art created by children and teenagers, and for those in the market for a little something, there will be vendors selling artisan and environmentally-related items. The exhibition grounds will be set-up in “ZONES”.
