Join us for this free high-energy art event, in which teams of artisan gladiators compete for the coveted “Trophy du Trash” in a timed “sculpt-off” using recycled materials. Enjoy food, beer & wine for purchase, while you root on your favorite team and listen to great music.
HOW IT WORKS: Each team receives a box of similar items and races against 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 winner of the “Trophy du Trash.” Spectators vote on the People’s Choice Award.
FOR THE KIDS: While the adults build their sculptures outside, kids ages 6-12 can have their own trash-to-treasure sculpture activity inside the Art Center. Or, stop by the rolling reCREATE truck, where visitors of all ages can create and take home a Junk 2 Genius masterpiece.
SPONSOR A TEAM: Give your business, school or other organization strong community visibility — and a fun team-building activity for family, friends & employees — while promoting our community’s commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle.
SIGN UP AS AN INDIVIDUAL: Davis Art Center will place those who sign-up individually on a team with other aspiring recycling artists. ($15 each for ages 13+. Sign up online through our class registration system.)
