2019 Trash Art Competition

You are invited to learn how to create art from reused materials (no experience necessary).This practice saves money, promotes creativity, and reduces waste.


More Than Junk

The Office of Sustainability partners with Who Gives a SCRAP, a local reuse store, to provide reclaimed materials for the purpose of creative expression which gives back to our local economy. This competition challenges the PPCC community to look at trash differently, seeing beauty and potential where there is waste.
