North Sydney Community Centre (NSCC) is raising awareness and much-needed funds for ‘Taronga Zoo’s Little Penguins’ with an innovative art exhibition of recycled and reused coffee cups.

cupart-3Everyone is invited to transform recycled paper coffee cups into artistic masterpieces! Paint it, crush it, glue it or even suspend it! The canvas is not the only means to produce an artwork, you know!

Held for one day only and an opening night, Expresso Yourself CupART brings together an eclectic mix of local and national artists, public figures and community for a single cause to help bring attention to the problems facing our local Penguins.

So stop putting your empty takeaway coffee cups in the bin and transform them into art pieces instead (Note: 1 billion disposable cups end up in landfill in Australia every year).  Take a time-out, sit and enjoy seeing how you can transform an everyday functional item into something completely different and unique.

Be a part of this innovative art exhibition where all cup artworks will be on display and for sale raising funds for charity.  So get involved, get your creative juices flowing and keep those cups out of landfill.

Full details of the event, the threat to Little Penguins and their nesting environments from accumulated rubbish and other factors,  ENTRY FORM and so on can be found by clicking here.

At this pop up exhibition, visitors will enjoy seeing how a humble paper coffee cup has been transformed into an extraordinary work of art, and take home their own unique artwork.

Webmaster note: I couldn’t resist a quick internet search on cup art.
Sorry, can’t give credit to the individual artists as these images are from a simple google preview page but (whoever you all are) I acknowledge your artistic abilities and the originality of your individual pieces.  Love them all!
