Junk 2 Genius Competition
at the Davis Art Center
FRIDAY SEPT 10th, 5-9PM
The Davis Art Center, in partnership with Roseville-based non-profit reCREATE, inaugurated a new FREE family-friendly event in Fall 2009 that celebrated California Arts Day while promoting recycling and encouraging creative artistry.
The festivities will include art projects for kids using a variety of cast-off materials, as well as food, beer, wine and music!
At Junk 2 Genius, teams of artisan gladiators compete for the coveted “Trophy du Trash” in a timed “sculpt-off” using recycled materials. Each team receives a box of similar items and races aganst the clock to create its own unique work of art. When the closing bell sounds, a panel of judges critiques the final green giants and names the winning team.
