The Upcycle Art Project intends to challenge artists to take materials that are no longer in use and give them a second life and new function as a piece of art. In doing so, the finished product often becomes more practical, valuable and beautiful than what it previously was.

By showcasing discarded items as a resource, the project’s aim is to inspire people to creatively repurpose and reuse what they already have.

ReWorks will provide local artists with a $250 stipend and space at Summit Artspace to create a work of art using materials that would have otherwise been landfilled. By supporting artists who work with recycled materials, ReWorks hopes to encourage people to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials and promote new ways of thinking about art and the environment.

Fifteen artists will be selected to participate. They will be provided access to studio space (10’ x 10’) at Summit Artspace for one week — October 28-November 3 — and the completed works will be displayed at an opening to be held November 5 at Summit Artspace as part of the November Art Walk. Artists will also be provided with opportunities to visit select locations where they will have access to and can gather discarded materials for use in their pieces.

Artists are required to include only previously used materials that have been repurposed within the finished piece. Elements of the finished piece can be completed offsite, however, each artist will be required to be present at Summit Artspace on Saturday, October 29 between 12 noon and 2 p.m., and Tuesday, November 1 between 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. On those dates, the public will be invited to view the works in-progress and engage in a dialogue with the artists and ReWorks staff.
