OIL DRUM ART
Art is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit grass roots art movement
that seeks to change human patterns through meaningful artworks.
By using the 55-gallon oil drum as a metaphor for oil artists
transform the drums into provocative artworks that address
global issues about oil such as the environment, global warming,
sustainability, the economy, the energy crisis, our carbon
footprint, and the Middle East conflict.
It also reflects positive aspects of fossil
fuel that has provided economical solutions in the past
century for our needs and comforts.
To accomplish its
international goal Oil Drum Art uses art exhibitions as
a means of presenting artist’s commentaries to the public.
The exhibitions provide a forum for meaningful dialogues between
art and society and perhaps make a difference.

PRINCIPLE OF OIL DRUM ART
Oil Drum Art is a call to
the artists in American communities and perhaps in the
world to define modern human civilization using a powerful
symbol as a common medium.
Ancient civilizations are
known more for their art than for their politics. The Oil Drum Art
project is an invitation to bring art into direct contact with our
civilization so as to inform it, perhaps for posterity.
or controlling of oil has been a defining policy objective of the
20th Century community of nations. The oil drum contains the essential
energy of our world, without which our modern civilization
could not exist. The drum container in its vast simplicity as
a symbol common to all men, evokes every one of the forces, greed,
hope, peace and havoc that have influenced mankind for a century
The oil drum when used as
a means of expression will remind the world that art has a place,
not just in museums, but wherever it may be seen and pondered, and
not just as art, but as philosophy whose power will rise from the making
of art from a common symbol that is large enough to embrace it.
