Blue Pig Gallery Goes Green with Environmental Exhibit

Palisade's Blue Pig Gallery has been making efforts to 'go green' since they opened. For example, they recycle in both the kitchen and office. They reduce waste in myriad ways by re-purposing tools and objects and reducing wrapping supplies. In new construction this year they installed sustainable materials like cork flooring and included tank-less hot water heaters.

Come learn about ways over 30 area Blue Pig Artists are inspired by the natural world, ways in which they aim to be 'green' and how you can go green in the artist's way!

For more details call the gallery (970) 464-4819 or visit their website www.thebluepiggallery.com.
