reCYCLE Public Art Project

reCYCLE is Takoma’s favorite annual public art project. Each year, the Old Takoma Business Association commissions artists to create imaginative outdoor sculptures made from a portion of recycled materials which are installed along the sidewalks creating a self-guided walking tour of Takoma – from Takoma Park, MD to the Takoma neighborhood of Washington, DC  – with the goal of attracting and engaging visitors. Seats are installed June-October each year and then auctioned off to the public.

Online Auction – Starts Monday, October 17th

You can own your own Seat! Participate in our online auction, and one of them can be yours to enjoy in your yard or a favorite community space. All proceeds go to public art for Takoma! Don’t miss out on the chance to own a one-of-a-kind piece of art! Click here for the auction. Auction ends October 31st at noon (12 pm)
