Alice Upcycle Art Prize – entries now open
Tue February 16 @ 8:00 am - Thu May 20 @ 5:00 pm
Alice Springs Town Council is excited to announce the inaugural Alice Upcycle Art Prize! This addition to the Alice Springs arts calendar is an initiative from Council’s Climate Action Plan that celebrates artistic innovation whilst promoting environmental awareness.
As a sculptural exhibition and art prize, the program will showcase the creativity and sculptural artworks of Central Australian artists, working with recycled and repurposed materials at a time where reducing, reusing and recycling is more important than ever before.
The exhibition venue will be at the Rediscovery Centre – a retail recycling centre and salvage yard where you can drop-off, rediscover and purchase second-hand, reused and preloved goods.
With a total prize pool of $7,000, prize categories include: excellence in welded and non-welded pieces; a People’s Choice Award; and, an award to the artist whose work most creatively and effectively communicates awareness of the impacts of climate change in Central Australia.
Entries close 5pm, Thursday 20 May, with the awards night on Friday 11 June 2021. Shortlisted works will be exhibited until Saturday, 26 June 2021, at the Rediscovery Centre, Commonage Road.
