Make That Ike Junk Into Art! Win Big Money!
The mounds of junk, broken furniture, chopped-up trees lying on your curb?
It's art, baby. And it's art that might just be worth $2,000.
Fresh Arts has announced a contest that's looking for the best "Made From Ike" art.
Fresh Arts is calling the Greater Houston community to become cultural first responders and submit creations made from Ike remnants still littering the streets and yards of our city, celebrating the great spirit this city has shown in the wake of such devastation, and the compassion, humanism and healing that comes from making and appreciating art in our community.
Says Fresh Arts' Mandy Graessle: "We want Houstonians to make something from the remnants of Ike that still litter our streets, yards and pools and submit their creation to Fresh Arts....Professional, novice and never-before artists are encouraged to participate; adults, children, families, businesses, organizations, churches and more!"
