Waste disposal is a huge challenge for every citizen, but the Municipal Corporation (MC) has found a special use for some of its waste material - it has transformed them into a work of art.

Celebrating the 75th Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav, the MC organised a one-day waste-to-art exhibition-cum-live workshop under the banner, “Apshist Kala Pradrshni”, to honour various artists working in the transformation of waste items into the best art. Artists from different NGOs, organisations and individuals gathered at Plaza, Sector 17, today to showcase their talent.

Mayor Ravi Kant Sharma was the chief guest at the exhibition-cum-workshop. He appreciated the works of artists for their wonderful exhibits which are being miraculously made out of household waste.

He said art, which is not only a delight for the eyes but also sends out a strong social message, is the need of the hour. This exhibition-cum-live workshop would create awareness on various environmental issues also. The initiative is also going to boost socio-cultural art in the city and would encourage young artists to come up with new ideas.

The exhibits included “Sanitary Waste to Art” by Kala Sagar Group, “Plastic Waste to Art” by Indian Oil Corporation Ltd, “Cloth Waste to Art” by Veenu and Laxmi Self-Help Group and “Cloth Waste to Art” by Veenu, Shagun, Reet Self-Help Groups.
