We'll be showcasing the Object Afterlife Art Challenge Exhibit this month.
This is MECCA's 5th annual Object Afterlife Art Challenge exhibit. It will be on display at MECCA through the month of September.
MECCA challenged artists, of mediums and skill levels, to create though-provoking, intentional works using scrap materials. Participating artists were given mystery materials from MECCA and 2 months to create their pieces. This exhibit is the culmination of their efforts. The artist can use all or part of the objects given and is free to incorporate other materials and mediums as well. This event has grown in size and recognition over the last 5 years, gaining support, participants and followers. Over 50 artists took the challenge!
The Object Afterlife Art Challenge is supported in part by a Community Arts grant awarded by the Lane Arts Council. A huge thanks to the Lane Arts Council and City of Eugene for supporting this project!
Every week we'll be featuring materials at a special price. We'll be bringing our stored materials from the warehouse for these special sale days, so you won't want to miss out.
