old vs new art project

For this week’s Weekend Art Project, we want you to contrast the old with the new. 

It’s a contrast that is visible everywhere we look, from people to objects and nature. On a single street, you might find a skyscraper towering over a 200-year-old church, or a classic car stopped alongside the latest generation hybrid. There is something that is endlessly fascinating about finding the old next to the new. It is poetic, nostalgic, and—in a sense—the essence of the cycle of life. 

So this week, we want you to contrast something old with something new to create a meaningful artistic image. Find it in the real world, create a collage, or use a creative editing technique. When you’ve got your shot, tag it with #WAPoldvsnew to enter!
