Stop #4  7 PM | The Lincoln Gallery (309 W 4th Ave)

With a mission to connect scrap and fine art, MECCA challenged artists to make inspiring, thought-provoking, and creative works of art out of a mystery box of materials in two months’ time. This year, 104 artists of all skill levels and mediums, signed up for the Object Afterlife Art Challenge, the most ever to participate. The resulting artworks exist in the space where artistic discovery and conservation meet, inspiring us all to think differently about the materials we may consider waste.
