Metamorphose is no longer taking applicants for the art challenge. Stay tuned for details for the Fashion and Art show at HiFi Music Hall on Saturday, April 23rd.
Call to Artists Calling all artists, ReUse artists, and youth artists! We've got a fun opportunity for you!
St. Vincent de Paul, in collaboration with MECCA, offers a unique opportunity to look at salvaged materials in a new way and raise awareness of creative re-use. We’re looking for professional and amateur artists, reuse crafters and youth artists to create art, starting with an existing piece from St. Vincent de Paul’s discard collection. Each will be given $10 MECCA Money to shop for creative art supplies at MECCA’s Materials Exchange Store. Artists are free to incorporate other materials and mediums into their piece.
The upcycled art will be on display during the Metamorphose Fashion Show on April 23rd, at HiFi Music Hall. The show will demonstrate how St. Vincent de Paul and MECCA’s support the local creative community while diverting usable resources from the waste stream. Art pieces will be offered by silent auction during the show. Proceeds will be a 50/50 split between the artist and St. Vincent de Paul. Winners will be awarded a cash prize and will be decided by celebrity and guest judges, and by the audience. Winning art will continue to hang on display at HiFi Music Hall for the month of May.
To participate, please pick up an application at MECCA during store hours, download the application here, or fill out the application online below. You must RSVP by February 26, 2016 to participate. RSVP by emailing your application or intent to firstname.lastname@example.org
