Create art out of trash for Second Use salvage contest

by | Sep 8, 2010

You’ve got two more days to submit your trash to the Second Use annual Salvage Art & Design Contests. Submissions are due Friday. Judging for the contests is during Second Use’s annual Fall Festival from 11 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25. The festival has live music, free food, horse rides, family games for the whole family, and a store-wide sale.

Join artists and salvage enthusiasts from all over the Puget Sound region who have pieced together old doors, toilets, hardware bits, and other found treasures in order to challenge visitors, customers, and neighbors to re-evaluate art, waste, and consumption in construction projects and our everyday lives.
This year, the Salvage Art Show will host two separate contests: Salvage Design and The Art of Salvage. The “Salvage Design” contest provides an opportunity for designers and homeowners alike to show off images from a recent construction, building, or remodeling project that used salvage materials: a home, business, outbuilding, or any design project. “The Art of Salvage” hosts original artwork, such as painting, sculpture, mixed media, and portable functional objects that have been created using salvage materials.

For more information, email Carrie Ferrence at Second Use Building Materials, or call 206-763-6929.
