Sustainable art exhibit Arcadia Earth reflects on humanity’s ecological footprint

imageFounder Valentino Vettori and his team have been working three months straight to install the 15,000-square-foot pop-up in the East Village, which features 15 rooms of artwork by environmental artists. The catch? They all used only recycled and biodegradable materials to build their works.

"We wanted to show how we can upcycle and make beautiful things with recycled materials," Vettori told amNewYork this week. "I wanted to design it in the most sustainable way. At the end of this show, I want to walk away with the least amount of pollution."

Arcadia Earth, located at 718 Broadway, opens Friday and is slated to run for three months, before hopefully heading on the road, Vettori said.

Tickets are $33 and $27 for students.
