Description

The Ojai Art Festival is holding an international juried show of art created from trash. 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.

We are fortunate that we get to interact with artists, directors and curators from all over the country who use our software every day. After four years of running our business, we decided to pursue a goal of creating our own festival that would be inclusive, interesting, and compelling as well as create opportunities for inspiration and change. Community collaboration and support is part of what makes Ojai a special place. We consulted with the annual Ojai Film Festival about our idea and they asked if we would consider doing an art festival around an environmental theme in conjunction with Focus Earth, a segment of the festival that brings awareness, through film, to the environmental challenges of our time.
