Transform a Majestic Tree into a Kinetic Sculpture with Up-Cycled Items From YOU!

Here is a distinctive way for EVERYONE to get involved with an art project!  Artist, Elayna Toby is collecting up-cycled items from around the community to create a kinetic sculpture which will be featured at the International Kinetic Sculpture Symposium in Boynton Beach.  It takes place February 6-8.
