Junk 2 Genius Competition

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.)
