Recycled ART OBJECTS exhibit

You already know that no matter where I go -- I enjoy checking out the OLD HOUSE TOURS -- the mansion tours, the Victorian B&B's, etc. If you're ever in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin -- be sure to visit the Seippel Homestead and Center for the Arts, 1605 N. Spring Street, Beaver Dam, WI.

During my recent visit, the art exhibit was "Hello Again -- Recycled Art". With their permission, I took lots of photographs. This exhibit was so much you know what this is? It's a room size mural made out of scrunched up plastic garbage kidding...

This beautiful little picture is made entirely out of used zippers...

And who would have thought about this? The artist drilled holes in small squares of tile samples -- then wove the chair back & seat. HOW CREATIVE IS THAT??
EVEN THE SIDEWALK becomes an art project at a place like this!! I always try to zoom into the Sieppel Art Center when I am in Beaver Dam because there is always something inspiring to see.

No matter WHERE YOU GO this summer -- whether you're in a big city or a small town -- check out the local galleries or art museums...because somebody worked REALLY HARD to put together an interesting exhibit for you. AND THAT'S WHAT ART IS ALL ABOUT, EH?? never know where it's gonna come from...!

This particular exhibit is running until June 13 -- so, if you're in the area -- RUN -- DON'T WALK. Line up a few girlfriends and make a day trip out of it. Or take your daughters or grandkids. Hey -- go by yourself, like I did. BUT PLEASE DO GO.


  1. Cool art!!! Need to show the zipper art to Cathy Swenson. We have 6 shoebox-sized boxes full of zippers in her sewing studio, that were donated to our 4-H club. Running out of ideas for them.
