Old Town Scrapfest: Call ...

2010 Old Town Scrapfest

Old Town Scrapfest is an intense two week local sculpture competition in which teams of artists, welders and Scrapfest enthusiasts utilize recycled scrap materials from Friedland Industries in Old Town Lansing, MI. The competition will begin with one hour to find scrap at Friedland Industries, Inc. and two weeks to build a masterpiece. The sculptures will then be displayed during Old Town’s popular Festival of the Moon & Festival of the Sun. Last year, these two festivals attracted more than 5,000 visitors to Old Town, with more expected this year.

The finished pieces will be judged by accomplished artists and community members and auctioned off during Festival of the Sun on Saturday, June 26. First, second, and third place winners will receive a cash prize. Amounts are to be announced, but will be announced before the competition begins. All teams will receive 33.3% of the amount that their pieces are auctioned off for at Festival of the Sun.

Old Town Scrapfest is a fundraiser supporting public art projects in the historic Old Town district. The creativity involved is limitless. Scrapfest is an opportunity to have your piece be judged, and shared with the world. Additional contest information can be found on our web site along with the Scrapfest application.
