Teaming up with Art’s Artlab of the Vero Beach Museum, Keep Indian River Beautiful is providing recycled materials to make marionettes.

April 7th, 2013 at 2:00pm marks the grand unveiling of the highly anticipated performance of Pablo Cano’s Marionettes at the Vero Beach Museum.  The teaming up of Keep Indian River Beautiful and Art’s Artlab, an afterschool program for teens ages 14-18 at the Vero Beach Museum, is a first time venture and provides these young artists with recycled materials to use for the creation of their own marionettes inspired by those of the Pablo Cano “Recycled Dreams” exhibit.  Approximately twenty teens will be participating in this project that will be displayed at the mall, at the KIRB Reuse Center at the Indian River Mall, and during the Children’s Art Festival on April 27th.

Keep Indian River Beautiful is a local non-profit that promotes personal responsibility, recycling, up-cycling, cigarette litter prevention, and organized clean-ups throughout our community.  To find out more about them or to volunteer visit and to apply for the HETY Award of $300 and custom plaque for your youth focused event or organization please visit
