SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – An upcoming festival goes to show how one person’s trash can be another person’s canvas. “Flea markets, dumps, have always been favorite places for me, as a matter of fact, I’m lining up a trip to the Gallup dump. I’ll prowl dumpsters if they’re around,” said artist Bill Skrips. He is one of the artists whose work will be featured at the Recycle Santa Fe Festival later this month.

There will be an art sale as well as a juried exhibit and chances for visitors to make their own art. The festival runs from November 12 through November 14 at the Santa Fe Convention Center.
