Call for Recycled Art: The Altered Toy Project

This just in from Mend …

Call to Artists!
Presenting the second Mend donation project, “The Altered Toy Project”. Mend is a non-profit educational arts organization, located in Boise, Idaho USA. As an organization, we are interested in exploring the potential of hand made objects. Through this project, we hope to expand awareness of the importance of craft, improve quality of life for those in need and provide an organized opportunity to give back. Keeping with current trends towards green projects, we are inviting you to reuse existing toys, in the creation of new toys. All contributing artist/craftspeople will be part of Mend’s donation to the Children’s Home at the Warm Springs Counseling Center in Boise, Idaho. We welcome all artists and crafts people to join this project. Your toy will be a part of two group fundraiser shows and possibly included in a surprise publication. Submission deadline is September 19th, 2008. To participate or get more information please visit our website, www.themendproject.com.
