Trash Bash 2014! Somerville’s Second Annual Recycled Art Competition: Sunday, June 22, 12 to 6 PM
Somerville, MA, May 29, 2014  – 3 Graces Productions and the Uniun Warehouse are proud to present Trash Bash 2014! Somerville’s Second Annual Recycled Art Competition. Trash Bash 2014 is an ArtsUnion event funded, in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Somerville Arts Council, and is designed to harness the city’s creative spirit while increasing awareness about the impact of consumerism upon our environment.

Showcasing multiple artists from the greater Somerville area, Trash Bash 2014! features art made from recyclable materials such as candy wrappers, found machinery and other objects, t-shirts, various electrical parts, and much more. Winners will be determined by audience members and a panel of local celebrity judges.

Adult and youth artists can participate for free and should register by Friday, June 6 at midnight here.

Tom Champion, the former communications director for the City of Somerville, will serve as MC of this event. Sustainability workshops will be provided by Somerville Local First and Next Step Living. Guest musicians include David Tanklefsky, 3D and the Greaseballs, and the Soulful Souls. Celebrity judges include Mike Curtis of the Uniun Warehouse, JJ Gonson of Cuisine en Locale, and Joolie Cahill, local artist.

Members of the public will have an opportunity to participate in the creation of a sculpture facilitated by artists Robert Smith and Nick Wyneken in adjacent Stone Place Park.

Artists will have their wares on sale in the beautiful Uniun Warehouse. Family friendly activities will also be on hand. Suggested donation is $5. Advance tickets can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/683357.
