I really enjoy seeing upcycling in action, so I could have spent a good amount of time looking at the exhibit, but there was that matter of the party to attend. So, I had to content myself with a few quick photos:
Dresses made from book pages.
Dress made from bark.
Dress made from food packaging.
A vintage tablecloth was used for the skirt section of this dress. Great idea!
The squares of this quilt were made from old t-shirts.
Since I had so little time to look through the exhibit, I didn't get a chance to study this dresser closely, but it's plain to see that it has been invigorated by a paint job and a healthy sprinkle of buttons! I would have loved to have see a "before" photo - I'm sure the dresser was very drab before the artist transformed it into a one-of-a-kind piece.
There were more works on display, but alas, I just didn't have the time to look everything over. But I was grateful to see what I had - it happened to be the very last day of the exhibit.
Hats off to all the artists, and thanks as well to the Indiana Welcome Center for hosting the exhibit.
