Hampton Waterways Restoration Project (HWRP), a volunteer committee from the city of Hampton’s Clean City Commission, is hosting its second Trash-to-Art Auction and Fundraiser exhibit at the Seize the Day art exposition located on 7 Mallory, Phoebus, Hampton, VA. View the event flyer.

The Art Auction and exhibit will showcase art made from and inspired by trash found in waterways, on beaches, and everywhere in the Hampton Roads area. The exhibit’s opening reception is November 4, 2017 at 6 p.m. and runs through November 12, 2017. The auction and exhibit aim to raise awareness about the beauty and importance of improving the waterways in Hampton Roads. A donation of $10.00 is suggested upon entrance. Auction proceeds will serve as seed funds for Hampton Waterways and Restoration Project (HWRP) future projects that support making Hampton’s waterways more swimmable and fishable.
