From a fire pit formed out of old engine parts to a photo booth made of discarded household items, the streets of Old Town were filled with amazing up-cycled art July 14 and 15. ScrapFest is a unique Old Town festival that celebrates art, creativity and resource reuse. This year, twenty talented teams competed to see who could create the most unique sculpture out of scrap metal, transforming trash into treasure. Over 20 metal sculptures were auctioned off and five smaller works of art were sold. There was also a raffle and one lucky participant won a three-piece band sculpture by Bob Welton from Iron on the Move.
Congratulations to all the artists who participated and to first place Hammered, second place Artistic Iron and third place Liscomb Art, winning the top spots. Team Hammered won with their piece “Therefore I am” – a kinetic sculpture with moving gears and parts. A special thanks all our volunteers and Friedland Industries for helping us pull off such an amazing event!
