On this day three years ago the Toxic Art Kickstarter campaign was launched and it soon reached its target to help clean up the polluted streams in Ohio. Since then the team completed the pilot plant at Corning and have been working hard at building the first full-scale treatment plant in Truetown, OH.
In the meantime Guy Riefler, Michelle Shively and John Sabraw have continued to refine the treatment process and test new methods to produce small batches of iron oxide pigment from acid mine drainage pollution. This pigment made its way to Gamblin Artists Colors and it’s been exactly 1 year since they released Reclaimed Earth Colors!
This project has been a massive inspiration to us and it’s been such a pleasure to give our platform to Prof. John Sabraw this week!
Please consider donating to The John Sabraw Arts and Innovation Fund to help support the team’s work, where art and science communally work towards climate justice!
You can also support the remediation process by using the Gamblin Artists Colors Reclaimed Earth Colors available in 3 beautiful colours shipped worldwide!
