A wonderful idea comes together
The Ojai Art Festival is holding an international juried show of art from trash, discarded objects and materials. The art will be shown in approx. 40 shops, restaurants and galleries in Ojai from November 7 thru November 24, 2013. The opening weekend is November 7-10, coinciding with the Ojai Film Festival's Focus Earth screenings. Every year, nearly 4,500 people attend the film festival events. It is our goal to stimulate environmental awareness, encourage conservation, and promote new ways of thinking about art, sustainability, and the environment.

DISCARTED asks artists to work with trash, discarded objects and materials to raise questions and ideas, aesthetic and moral, about the life of the planet our wasteful society threatens.

Community collaboration and support is part of what makes Ojai a special place.
