Marta Farris was one of more than 120 vendors who converged on Esther Short Park this weekend for the Recycled Arts Festival. For 20 years, Farris has been turning "stuff" into colorful lawn decorations, such as this three-foot tall pear made of metal construction ties. The festival not only gives local artists a chance to sell their recycled works, but also helps to educate the community on the benefits of recycling and becoming more environmentally friendly.
