THE JUNKYARD ZONES

Come to The Junkyard and explore them all!

Zone 1 - Creative Team Challenge = Teams & families compete to create imaginative upcycled artwork in specific categories: art for the garden, furniture transformation, decorative masks & artists' choice!

Zone 2 - EcoArtist Gallery & Marketplace = Artwork and sculpture by established eco-artists made from some of the most unusual trash. Artwork will also be availble for sale in this zone. See participating artists below.

Zone 3 - The Kids Gallery = Masterpieces created by local young artists. Old CDs and used plastic water bottles will be transformed into hanging art and bugs and creatures, many created at the HV Arts Council’s free summer workshops for kids.

Zone 4 - Local Green Resources = Useful and educational environmentally-related displays, with participation from the Hopewell Valley Green Team.

Zone 5 - Restoration Alley = What’s more upcycled than vintage cars? Check out a different display of refurbished cars as well as restored farm equipment each of the three days of The Junkyard.
