ZeroLandfill comes to Pittsburgh


ZeroLandfill™ materials are used by the creative community including artists and arts educators. | We have repurposed over 400,000 pounds of expired samples back into the community since 2006. | The Pittsburgh event is held in April. | ZeroLandfill™ is a project of BeeDance, LLC.

Expired specification samples collected from the architectural, interior, and graphic design industry (examples listed below) are made available to local artists, educators, and students though ZeroLandfill projects all around the country.

ZeroLandfill will hold two collection days (April 1 and 15, noon-3 p.m.) at Guardian Storage (2839 Liberty Ave., in the Strip District), followed by two giveaway days (April 2 and 16, noon-3 p.m.). Fill up a bag, fill up your car.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
