Since its launch in 2007, local artists have found Recycled Treasures a valuable resource in
acquiring the materials and tools they need to create. In celebration of this and to raise
awareness of what Recycled Treasures’ planned expansion could do to further aid the
Hamtramck/Detroit community, Recycled Treasures is pleased to announce our very first 30
Day Recycled Art Challenge.
By registering their participation local artists will be welcome to a unique haul of varied materials
from Recycled Treasures’ overstocked current facilities. For 30 days across October and
November, ten artists will create an original work to be exhibited at Oloman Next Door in
Hamtramck on November 30th with a grand prize of $500 to be awarded. All donated pieces
will be auctioned to raise funds for Recycled Treasures’ plans to expand their furniture bank and
low priced resale operations.
All artists receive a $50 gift card for Recycled Treasures. Participation requires online or in-store
registration by Oct 26, and donated $50 entry fee. For rules and registration visit
