Trash Bash 2015

Somerville's Third Annual Recycled Art Show

Sunday, November 8, 2015


Aeronaut Brewery, Somerville

It’s time again for Trash Bash 2015!  We are thrilled to partner with Aeronaut this year as we take over their brewery and turn it into an art show for a day.  

Submit your application today, and join us as we dance, drink, and celebrate sustainability in Somerville

This year's show will support Second Chances, Inc.  All profit will go to support their amazing work in Greater Boston!

Who can participate?

The recycled art competition is open to all adults and youth - artists, crafters, recyclers and up cyclers, professional, amateur, creative sorts, bank managers. Submit your application by Saturday, October 10 by Midnight in order to be considered for participation.  This year's event WILL sell out, as we are capping artists at 75. Please get your application in soon, to be sure you are entered into the competition. There is an application fee of $6 per youth entry, and $21 per adult application.  Please submit payment for your application here.  

What can you submit for artwork?

Acceptable artwork will be mixed media and any medium is permissible. Entries must use recycled content - either recycled materials or items that can be recycled and should use no or low VOC paints. Materials may include metals, paper, clothing, rubber, glass, plastic and other materials made of recycled content. Use of non-recyclable fasteners such as glue or tape are permitted. Most artwork will be invited to be shown at Aeronaut for the month of November. Sculptures will be reviewed for size and may be shown at Aeronaut for the month of November, pending appropriate space at brewery. Due to the heavy use of the tabletops at Aeronaut (and the fact that they will get toppled over!), artwork displayed on tabletop for Trash Bash will need to be taken home at the end of the night.


--Adult  First Prize = $250

--Youth First Prize = $250

--Adult and Youth Second and Third Prizes will be gifts from our amazing local business sponsors

--Honorable Mention Awards will be given for Originality, Creativity and Best Use of Recycled Content

Entries will be judged on educational value as well as overall artistic concept  and use of materials. 

What is the event all about?

Trash Bash is a free event celebrating sustainability, recycled art, and community! Food and beverages will be available for sale. Live music will also be featured as well as workshops. Community members will give their votes for favorite artwork. Guest celebrity judges will decide on the winners. local americana musicians will serenade us. And of  COURSE, we'll sample Aeronaut treats.  In addition, much of the artwork presented at Trash Bash hung artwork may be shown at Aeronaut Brewery for the month of November.
