Gladiator GarageWorks is sponsoring The Art of Recycling: The Coolest Show in Town exhibition, currently taking place in Washington, D.C. The exhibitionshowcases an artistic take on the history of refrigerator innovation as part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Energy Star Recycle My Old Fridge Campaign.

The campaign encourages Americans who own old, inefficient refrigerators to trade them in. In many instances, instead of recycling an old refrigerator, homeowners take their old models and use them in the garage as a second food storage solution.

The Coolest Show in Town exhibit will feature up to 50 old refrigerators that have been turned into works of art by students, institutions, utility companies, private organizations, and individual
artists across the U.S. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to vote for their favorite refrigerator art.

A blue ribbon panel of judges will select the top three entries based on the following criteria: Best Use of Recycled Materials; Overall Creativity; and Best Portrayal of the Campaign Theme.
