DEBUNK JUNK ART CONTEST

Patriot Place Fall 2021 Debunk Junk Art Contest for All Ages

Let’s put some of that unused “STUFF” that is currently cluttering your space to good use.  And mix in some good condition trash “THINGS’ to creatively design sustainable, useful, and enjoyable “CREATIONS”.

Waste Management, Artist’s Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place, and Patriot Place have teamed up for Patriot Place Fall 2021 Debunk Junk Art Contest.  We are soliciting all Patriot Place employees, their family and friends, and patrons for works of art that inspire others how to be more sustainable.  Your entry may encompass photography, technology, sculpture, poetry, drawing, painting, collage or a combination of any of these.  Your job is to artistically show how junk can be repurposed into sustainable, useful and enjoyable creations.  As natural resources diminish, and society seeks to divert more waste from landfills, our Debunk Junk Art Contest challenges contest participants to design “STUFF” for reuse!

ENTRY DETAILS:
Register your entry no later than December 7, 2021. Submit your creation in person at the Artist’s Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place Foxboro, MA
