Reduce, reuse, recycle -- that’s the inspiration and medium for student art projects currently in exhibit at the Great Neck Arts Center.

This is the second year that the center is displaying pieces from the town’s Recycle Art contest. Two-hundred students from the Town of North Hempstead’s 11 school districts submitted 75 pieces, including a Spongebob Squarepants made from toilet paper rolls and a Michael Jackson statue made from soft drink cans.

All the entries will be displayed at the arts center through April 11. Sixteen winning entries from four age groups -- kindergarten through second grade, third through fifth grades, middle school and high school -- will be displayed in the New York State Capitol building  April 11 to 15.
