The 2022 Trash Art Contest, organized by UW Recycling, gave UW artists a space to make statements around waste and sustainability while using materials usually thought of as trash.

More than 20 art pieces were created for the contest, in the categories of 2D art, 3D art and literature. Artists were asked to express feelings or ideas about waste, or a sustainability topic that relates to waste. Learn more in the video above, created by UW News, or read the blog post to see all the winners and their statements about the art.
