Second Ohio Artist Repurposes Inefficient Appliance

by on November 7, 2014

before and after freezer artYou won’t be able to recognize this 1950s Westinghouse freezer when Canton artist and gallery owner, Su Nimon, is done with it.

Nimon has been transforming the inefficient appliance into a work of art as a way to educate customers about our Appliance Recycling Program.

Come out and watch the transformation in progress tonight from 6 – 9:00 p.m. in the front window of Journey Art Gallery, during downtown Canton’s First Friday event in the Canton Arts District. After the process is complete, the freezer will be on display until the end of November.

“It has been fun to visualize this old freezer as something new,” Nimon said. “As a visual artist, my goal is to inspire and enrich. I want this freezer to bring feelings of freedom, inspiration and encouragement.”

 Nimon grew up in Ohio, and although she has spent much of her life as an engineer and later a graphic designer, she dove back into fine arts when she opened her first studio in 2007. She specializes in expressive acrylic painting. Journey Art Gallery hosts a series of painting, yoga and meditation classes each week.

The Appliance Recycling Program is part of our initiative to help customers use less energy, decrease energy costs, conserve natural resources and protect the environment. AEP Ohio customers can earn a $50 rebate when they schedule their inefficient refrigerator or freezer to be recycled, and we’ll pick up the appliance free of charge.

We’re not done yet. Keep your eyes peeled for two more inefficient appliances transformed by local artists.

 Together, we’re working to promote recycling!
