The 2015 Recycled Art Show – now by Ballard Reuse

The Recycled Art Show was (is…it’s still up until next month) a little different this year.  The Ballard architectural salvage store was bought out by a couple of the employees and now partners with Seattle ReCreative which is a non-for-profit in Greenwood (scroll down for more on that).

What hasn’t changed is that the art is AWESOME and I’ll prove it to you…

They let me upstairs at Ballard Reuse and couldn’t help but take a couple of photos before the big start of setting up:

The non-for-profit Seattle ReCreative is in Greenwood next to the other non-for-profit Greenwood Space Travel Supply. Their mission is to recycle art supplies to be used for art. They have an awesome children’s focus right now since the co-founders have small children. Sort of craft supply meets Goodwill. 🙂

    Wow, I love how far they go with the upcycle. Now I I’ll think twice before I discard something.
