LR accepting centerpiece sculpture entries in ‘Found Objects’ art contest


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Inspired to help the environment? A contest is accepting works of art from thrown away stuff in area parks and waterways. 

The City of Little Rock and the Sustainability Commission are accepting entries for the Found Objects Art Contest, sponsored by the new exhibit Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea coming in April to the Clinton Presidential Center.

Individuals and organizations are invited to create sculptures constructed from found litter.

The plan is to have the creations submitted and possibly chosen as centerpieces for the upcoming sustainability summit at the Clinton Library on March 28.

“We are looking for potentially 30 of these sculptures to be made out of found objects in our city parks and water we are encouraging people to get outside and enjoy one of your city parks and see what you can find,” says Melinda Glasgow, Little Rock Sustainability Officer.

You have until mid-March to collect and create your artwork.
