Update from Ken: February 12, 2011 “What’s the latest???” More than 700 art projects have been completed and received! All these wonderful creations can be viewed on our website. More than 200 additional projects are being worked on! And yes, I personally unpackage or uncrate every single piece of art that arrives! Is this work? No!! Just excitement.
Update from Ken: March 24, 2010 Landfillart Trivia! Now that the Landfillart Gallery has become so extensive, a question often asked of me is: what are the largest and smallest pieces in the collection? That is such an interesting question because it’s so difficult to tell proportions from the photos on this website.
The largest piece, “The Raven,” is by Pattie Young of New Plymouth, Idaho. It stands over 7 feet tall.
The smallest piece, “Au Coeur Du Monde,” is by Bertrand Sallard from LaTagniere, France. This piece is under 6 inches in diameter.
Both are truly phenomenal works of art.
I’ve been so busy working on this project, contacting potentional artist, answering email from current artists and keeping in touch with past artists that I’ve fallen behind on updating everyone on this page. My apologies!
