Join us in raising a sparkling cider toast to the artists and help kickoff this month-long exhibit. RSVP by email or phone 206-859-6717.

This summer the Northgate Library has partnered with CleanScapes to host a special art exhibit in honor of artwork created by local elementary students featuring zero waste ideas.

The exhibit will be available for viewing during the Northgate Library’s operating hours between August 1 and September 5, 2011, and will feature the artwork of fifty-six local elementary students.

As you will see, students have a lot to teach us. Youth have a distinctive voice and an important role in inspiring us to make positive choices in our day to day lives that support a sustainable and vibrant future for everyone.

If you have the chance to visit the exhibit, take note of the students’ waste reduction advice. You could help your neighborhood and the environment! Every year, Seattle and Shoreline neighborhoods compete to see who can reduce their waste footprint the most. Click on your city’s link to learn how you can reduce, reuse and win!

Art Exhibit Project Background
In 2010/11, CleanScapes invited Seattle and Shoreline elementary students to share their waste reduction ideas through an Elementary Student Art Contest.

This contest was part of CleanScapes Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards program, a friendly competition that challenges neighborhoods to reduce their waste footprint.

In total, fifty-six students participated from schools throughout the community including John Hay, Kimball, Wing Luke, Laurelhurst and Lowell Elementary in Seattle and Meridian Park, Echo Lake and Lake Forest Park Elementary in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. Youth artists in grades 1 through 6 created the works of art shown in this exhibit.
