One of the art exhibitions every year is the annual Upcycling Design Challenge. This event is all about turning trash into treasure. Upcycling involves taking waste material that would otherwise end up in our landfills and turning it into something valuable. Candy wrappers transformed into a new purse? Old glass bottles become a funky chandelier? The options are limited by your own creativity! The Langley Arts partners with the Township of Langley to organize an art exhibition of all the successful entrants at the Willowbrook Mall.
The Langley Arts has two venues for member exhibitions under the Arts in Found Spaces program. One locations in the township of Langley is at the Township Civic Facility at 20338 – 65 Avenue in Langley.
