Recycling Artist in Residence
RECYCLING ARTIST IN RESIDENCE Open Studio Invitation (Mondays in August - 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) 31 Oswego Avenue, Takoma Park
"Take a moment this month to swing by the Public Works facility at 31 Oswego Avenue to visit with mixed media assemblage artist and Takoma Park's Recycling Artist-in Residence, Renee Lachman. Open studio hours are on Mondays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. As part of her residency, Renee will be using donated items to recreate some of Takoma Park's indigenous plants while also showing the essence of our community's environmental consciousness. Contribute to her work by donating your unwanted - but ever useful - household objects, electrical bits, old 45s, and more at one of three donation sites (Takoma Park Community Center, Recreation Center and the Public Works Facility). With your help, the result will be an artwork that truly reflects community involvement."
