Located at 3,775 m. the Denali Schmidt Art Gallery is one of the highest art galleries in the world
Waste to Art is the way for us to showcase that something beautiful is hidden inside the material we throw away. Through this visual representation, we wish to change the perception around waste.
By attracting artists and allowing them to experiment with these unusual materials, we wish to inspire locals and visitors to be more conscious of the environmental impact their actions might have.
We have partnered with the Denali Foundation from Houston, Texas which will be supporting our artist residency program. The Foundation will identify and send artists to Sagarmatha Next for residencies to experiment and create art with waste materials found in the Himalayas. These visiting artists will further conduct workshops for local school children and adults.
The Art Gallery is now open showcasing works created by our invited artists.
These exhibits are displayed at the Denali Schmidts Art Gallery and the outdoor space at Sagarmatha Next.
