Recycle 4 the Arts

This Friday, June 27th join many of The Big Easy Rollergirls for “A Night of Recycled Creativity” at The Republic, located at 828 South Peters. The fun starts at 6PM but goes all night! This 2nd annual fundraiser benefits Recycle 4 the Arts.

Recycle for the Arts (R4A) a program of The Green Project is a trash-to-art storefront that supplies low-cost art supplies to the community. R4A provides art materials to individual artists, schools, art programs, galleries, and other non-profit groups at minimal cost. R4A's mission is to promote creative recycling and reuse in the community, support the arts, and educate the public through events and workshops based on creating art from reused materials.

The featured shows include:

Worn Again Jr. Runway Show at 6pm.

Worn Again NOLA 2 Runway Show at 8pm.
Recycled Dance Competition at 9pm.
And Thrift Store Art Edit - all night.

Cheer on (and vote for) CHEAP THR!LL, Coalminer’s Slaughter, Lil Rowdy, Marquee de Squad who will be performing in the Recycled Dance Competition. 10 teams will be competing… and they only received their mystery dance routine three weeks beforehand…. But guess who will be stepping it up a notch and competing on rollerskates?

Also, save your money because everyone is going to want to buy Beatrix sKiddo’s painting from The Juried Thrift Store Art Edit, where artists had 2 weeks to revamp a random piece of thrift store art.

Bea's painting after, and Bea's painting before!

The works will be auctioned off all night. Come out for a good cause!
