Scrap to Art Fundraiser at The Incubator
June 10, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Are you interested in industrial design, makerspace, DIY, shabby chic, crafting, mosaics, upcycling, repurposing, metals, wood, glass, plastics, ceramics, teaching art, sculptures, and/or mixed media? Then this event is for you.
ACAJC collected factory scraps that are cast off during the manufacturing process to sell in a one-day sale, to continue to support and fund arts in Jackson. Attendees purchase a bag for $18 ($13 for ACAJC members, students, and teachers) to fill up with copper, steel, plastic, wood, fabric, and other materials that have been generously donated by local manufacturers and merchants.
We believe that SCRAP to ART will connect arts with manufacturing in a way that is unique to Jackson. This will be a fun opportunity for the whole community to make artwork and foster inventions and innovations of all types.
Artists can submit the resulting projects to Art 634’s September 10 Second Sunday show, “Salvage.Recycle.Reuse.ART
Just 25% of funds needed to support arts in Jackson come in through ACAJC’s membership base, while the rest is raised through fundraising events such as Scrap to Art. This fundraiser is made possible by our title sponsor OmniSource, along with generous donations from MIS Cares, Great Lakes Graphics, and Lloyd Ganton Retirement Centers. And many thanks to the Jackson District Library for volunteer support.
