Chain Link Art

Monte Vista Elementary School in Albuquerque’s Nob Hill neighborhood is surrounded by a chain link fence. The southeast boundary of the fence features an upcycled installation of old CDs, fastened with plastic ties. The undersides of the discs face outwards and light reflects off the discs.  I liked how it formed an undulating rainbow as I drove by, so I stopped to take a picture.

Upcycled Art at Monte Vista Elementary School

 

There are so many ways to teach children to recycle, as well as take pride in their school. This is one that accomplishes both.

    • You can get blinding reflections, actually, in the case of the high desert sun here in Albuquerque. It’s one of the reasons I had to stand off to the side, other than to fit in the length of the chain fence. Thanks for the visit and comment Dizzylizzie72!

      • Just call me Liz. Have been in Albuquerque many times, know all about that New Mexico, Arizona Sun. I enjoyed your photo, had never seen anyone do that before.
