Good news! Long story short, I got hooked up with an organization called the Land Fill Art Project, all about reusing, reclaiming stuff that would otherwise go into the global scrap heap. Over 1,000 artists from around the WORLD have turned a hubcap into a piece of artwork. (See where this is going....?) I contacted the person in charge and I am doing up one of my fun, sculptural hubcaps and sending it in!
Google "Land Fill Art Project" and you can get to a page where you can view all the hubcaps that have been done so far!!! Absolutely amazing!
