North End Artist Giovanni DeCunto and Nazzaro Center Partner With World Eco Art Project

World Eco Art Project at Nazzaro Community Center using re-claimed bottle caps from Boston Harbor and elsewhere.

The World Eco Art Project (WECO), a non-profit founded and based in Boston is proud to announce it’s collaboration with renowned local artist Giovanni DeCunto and the Nazarro Community Center to create one of the first national recyclable art programs.  Mr. DeCunto has hangings in many local and national museums, as well as being a stalwart figure in the North End artistic scene. The Nazarro Community Center is able to provide the vast amounts of imagination required in the form of children ranging from 6 to 18. WECO is committed to fostering a sustainable artistic program in Boston that can be used as a guideline for a national program with many local feeder programs contributing.

World Eco Art Project
The World Eco Art Project is the brainchild of Mark Pincus, a local entrepreneur. It’s vision is to generate good will, and proffer the idea of sustainable art using the nearly infinite resource of children’s energy and imagination. Sustaining the non-profit model using recyclable materials, and local resources is included in the charter, and guides all that the group does.
