Zero Waste art exhibit: Past, present, future




Laoag City—A glimpse into the future of both art and life was shown during the Zero Waste art exhibit staged at the Laoag City Hall Auditorium from June 18-20.
 
The exhibits were all made from recycled materials in a bold statement that stresses that even wastes can become beautiful, artful and classical if given the proper treatment.

The exhibit was held as part of Laoag’s Golden Anniversary celebration.

One of the exhibit’s organizers Veronica Tina L. Tan of LEAD Movement said the exhibit means to show that keeping the environment clean and using waste materials as recycled art can be done.

She added that the exhibit is also a vehicle to call on everybody to adopt the “zero waste” policy.

Ms. Margo Rae Alesna, one of the exhibitors, said some of the displays can be purchased depending on the artist who created them.
