The world’s largest flip flop art exhibit is coming to Burnaby, transforming an environmental hazard into something beautiful, while supporting a great local cause! Metropolis at Metrotown presents Waste to Wonder, one-of-a-kind art exhibit transforming flip flop pollution into life-size animal sculptures.

Waste to Wonder Orca

Waste to Wonder at Metropolis at Metrotown

When: August 8 to September 8, 2019
Where: The Grand Court at Metropolis at Metrotown (4700 Kingsway, Burnaby)
Bid Online »

In addition to the exhibit, many special Waste to Wonder activities will be taking place in the Grand Court including a selfie station with an iconic Canadian beaver sculpture, artist demo / meet and greet, upcycle bracelet workshops, upcycle Kiehl’s workshop, plastics recycling drives, contest giveaways, and more.

Waste to Wonder Bear

The Waste to Wonder exhibit consists of five life-size sculptures of Canadian at-risk wildlife (the narwhal, orca, bison, grizzly, and caribou), each of them made from recycled flip flops. More than 6,500 flip flops in total were used,  by Ocean Sole Africa, to make the sculptures, requiring 2,500+ hours of work by more than two dozen artists.

Met Waste Collage

Why flip flops? In recent years, hundreds of thousands of discarded pairs of the synthetic-rubber sandals have been found worldwide in bodies of water and along shorelines. They often are made with non-recyclable materials, and contain chemicals that are harmful to humans, animals and plants. Ocean Sole Africa is a Kenya-based social enterprise that “upcycles” flip-flop waste and turns it into animal art sculptures. Ocean Sole Africa handcrafted the custom Waste to Wonder exhibit, the organization’s largest exhibit in the world to date. This and other Ocean Sole Africa projects not only create beautiful works of art, they promote conversation about environmental issues, as well as provide employment.

During the exhibit, each sculpture will be available for purchase through an online auction (minimum bid: $5,000+). All proceeds will be donated to Variety – the Children’s Charity of BC.
