home, garden and yard art created from recycled materials
Northwest native and popular recycle artist Kim
Groff-Harrington has been using tin, bottlecaps and "stuff", wired
together in her unique way for the past 10 years. Her work can be seen around the NW and around
the United States. She took the Red
Bull Challenge in 2006 and was honored to have her piece as one of the
thirty-five pieces selected from eighty-six entries and displayed at the Red
Bull Art of the Can Exhibit at the Weisman Art Museum in Minnesota. In summer of 2008 Kim was flown by the
prestigious South Bridgehampton Children's Museum in New York to participate
in their recycled art event.
"My work comes from my desire and need to
and the challenge of using discarded and surplus materials to
and continue in the folk art tradition of taking broken,
unwanted, discarded items and bringing new life to them.
The process includes much pounding, cutting of metal,
and my unique way of wiring materials together."
2007-2010. Kim Groff-Harrington. All
