Somerville has had the distinction of being home to more artists per capita than any other location in the United States. Trash Bash is dedicated to that fact and was created to embody 3 Graces’ commitment to sustainability. Our event is a celebration of environmental sustainability, fostering local economies, and creating an equitable space for all to show off their artistic excellence! Additionally, in 2015 we are hosting Trash Bash as a fundraiser for Second Chances, Inc, to support their important work in Greater Boston.
Now in its 3rd year, Trash Bash is the first and only recycled arts competition in Somerville! First hosted at Arts at the Armory in 2013 (and Uniun Warehouse in 2014), we are moving on to a more collaborative competition this year. We are partnering with Aeronaut Brewing Company, and donating all profits to Second Chances, Inc. Trash Bash continually brings together dozens of local amateur and professional artists to celebrate sustainability, community, and art. Artists come from all around Greater Boston, and range from kindergarten classes in Somerville and Medford, to local crafters who sell their wares at such locales as the SLF Local is for Lovers marketplace, to professional sculptors with shows all over the US.
This year, we are partnering with Second Chances in two ways. Textile artists will used recycled clothing from Second Chances drop-offs to create beautiful new art. Artists will opt in to this opportunity, if they are interested! Second, all profits from the event will go to Second Chances to support the amazing work that they do all over Greater Boston.
Local bands, Aeronaut beer tastings, the Local Foods Hub, educational workshops by sustainability-focused organizations, and of course an amazing recycled arts show, make this a premier Somerville community event. Jennifer Lawrence, co-founder and owner of 3 Graces Productions says this about Trash Bash: "This event showcases what is great about Somerville—creativity, innovation, and a commitment to sustainability. Our artists help to make Somerville the gritty, beautiful, neighborhood we all love to call home.”
