(WLNS) - Take 9000 pounds of scrap metal, creativity, resourcefulness, 18 teams and mix it all together.
What you get is Old Town's sixth annual ScrapFest competition.
It all begins tomorrow when the members of the 18 competing teams gather at Friedland Industries. They have one hour to collect up to 500 pounds of scrap metal that they will use to create an original sculpture.
Then they have two weeks to create their works of art that will be judged during the Festival of the Moon & Sun June 20 and 21 in Old Town. “ScrapFest not only highlights the abundance of art talent mid-Michigan has to offer, but it also serves as a catalyst to bring community members together to enjoy these one of a kind art pieces,” said David Such, co-owner of Such Video. “This event appeals to adults as well as children, providing them with a unique opportunity to experience great art that they would not have been exposed to otherwise.”
Cash prizes are awarded to the top three teams and the public can buy any of the works during a live and online auction on June 21.
