  • Brief Description

    This project is for the Recycling and Beautification Committee, a partnership of the 17 cities and counties in Hampton Roads. We are a region-wide public service initiative that educates and motivates citizens to make good environmental choices. It’s our mission to promote litter control, improve recycling, invest in community beautification, and increase general environmental awareness. Our focus is to inspire the community to create less waste, recycle right, and dispose of solid waste properly.

    Project Overview:

    This opportunity is open to artists and/or creative teams to make a visually striking Virginia LOVE sign (or creative interpretation of a Virginia LOVE sign) that is easily portable and focused on encouraging the community to create less waste and recycle right. It should be a visual experience reflecting the importance of limiting the waste we create, promoting recycling the right items, and/or the positive impact recycling has on our shared environment. It must be sculptural and representative of the diverse communities that make up our region.
