Art is a Happening!

The Festival of Festivals! Incorporating the 2nd Annual Objet Trouvé Found Art Festival.

In the tradition of Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Juan Gris and Georges Braque, 50 artists will exhibit and create one-of-a-kind artworks for sale. Celebrating the importance of this art movement at turn-of-the-century Paris, the Objet Trouvé Found Art Festival will construct a replica of Paris’ Eiffel Tower incorporating found materials and stand approximately 20 feet in height -- becoming the landmark for Objet Trouvé’s own festival location within the festival. Enjoy installations and hands-on demonstrations while celebrating one of the most cutting-edge and innovative forms of art.
