Project Laundry advocates hanging clothes on the line as a simple way to save money and conserve energy. A particularly charming feature of the Project Laundry website is their gallery of laundry art; their goal: to 'promote the beauty of the clothesline.'

My friend Alan runs a website called Hay in Art celebrating, well, hay and all its bucolic wonder.

So, what about the art of carlessness? It may be difficult to represent carlessness in art but I found this striking poster, which I've posted with permission, by Washington-based artist Nikki McClure. (Among the many images in Nikki's portfolio is, not surprisingly, a lovely one of a clothesline.)
