After you deal with your recyclables, stop by the RDF’s Give and Take area and check out Wellesley Dump Art, a one-day installation project put together as a bit of fun by Deborah Brown, co-blogger at The Swellesley Report, with permission from the RDF.
The idea is simple: to create still-life arrangements on-site at the RDF using exclusively items that come into the Give-and-Take area and plant material found at the RDF (and maybe some flowers from my yard). The arrangements will be photographed and later framed and exhibited in a to-be-determined space in town.
I’ll be there 8:00am – 11:00am, doing my thing. The curious and willing of all ages are encouraged to participate. It will be easy and fun. Just grab a few things you see that catch your eye, arrange them on a table, still-life style, and I’ll snap a photo. Can’t wait to see what the kids who stop by will come up with.
Here are a couple shots of what I’ve come up with lately:
