Sustainability Art Show

About the Show

The Office of Sustainability in partnership with the UAF Art Department sponsors a Sustainability Art Show twice a year. It highlights alternative uses for materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill. From trash to art, we bring you an opportunity to display your innovation, imagination, and ability to recycle and reuse! 

Check out photos of 2012 entries from the spring show.

UAF believes that waste can be a creative source for art and manufacturing. The goal of the sustainability art show is to promote local artist and industries that use recycled and repurposed materials in creative ways. This type of event will help reshape these “waste” materials into viable products, job creation and finally a responsible solution for much of our waste stream.
