Courtesy of Mimi Jardine Meet the artist.
Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 11. Mimi Jardine.
One woman's trash is another's art project.
At least that's the case for Mimi Jardine. The Phoenix artist recently won a Good 'N Plenty Award from Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art to fund her project, The Mobile Remittance Unit, a faux government office that collects and processes litter, cleaning up communities and raising awareness about single-use plastics.
