Everything is Beautiful: Art-Making with Recycled Materials

Jan 30, 2022 At SITE Santa Fe

Gen-erate student Maya Gollihugh of Capital High School presents a free drop-in art-making workshop with recycled materials led by exhibiting artist Isabel Rodriguez for the opening weekend of the Young Curators’ exhibition, Everything is Beautiful.

Open to participants 10 years old and up. Please RSVP here so we can get the correct amount of materials.

“Since my youth in the Spanish Market I learned how to be resourceful and use all kinds of found objects and materials to create artworks. I have always loved the challenge of working with new art media, and using random bits and bobs to create something beautiful instead of just discarding it as garbage.” – Isabel Rodriguez

Maya Gollihugh (Capital High School) takes inspiration from the Young Curators exhibition Everything is Beautiful for her public program. In this free workshop, participants will be engaged in a hands-on art making activity using only recycled materials. Gollihugh explains “I am interested in recycled art for this program because people have become disconnected from each other. I feel that art can bring people together in a deeply profound way and making recycled art can impact the way we as a society create.”

Increasing out-of-school opportunities for teens, Gen-erate engages Santa Fe youth in the process of curating public programs at SITE Santa Fe. Teens participate in Gen-erate plan, design, and execute public programs at SITE Santa Fe that focus on topical issues of local importance and generate constructive, intergenerational dialogue through the exploration of contemporary art. Under the mentorship of public programs staff, Gen-erate teens build significant connections to local communities and gain an introduction to career pathways in the arts.
