MAY is the month for rebuilding and for TRASHFORMATIONS.  Each Year the OCH Art Market partners with the Green Project to organize a Recycled Art Market and Recycled Home Furnishings Design Contest known as the “Trashformations”. In 2013 the event will be May 11th.   The 2013 Prize is $100 cash and $100 gift certificate from the Green Project.

Artists, Crafters, Recyclers:

Collect your inventory and get ready for the 2nd Annual “Trashformations” Recycled Art Contest and Market.

If you have photos of your works email them to and we will post them on our facebook page to start promoting your crafts.  All judging will take place in person at the OCH Art Market.  You must sign up for a space rental at the market which can be done from the OCH Art Market website.

All submissions must be original work and each artist can enter up to three pieces to be considered for the judging.  You can choose your 3 pieces to be your entries on site.  Pieces will be judged on originality, simplicity, functionality and creative use of recycled materials.  Submissions must serve a useful purpose in the home.  Judging will begin at 2 pm.  All entries must adhere to the rules of the market.  If they are unable to man their table they must partner with another vendor.  Sharing spaces on tables IS allowed.

Objets d’art are eligible. Last day to email your interest in participating is May 5th.

This is a great opportunity for vendors selling recyled products to get exposure, to win a prize sell some crafts and for one of New Orleans most historic neighborhoods get in the mind set of repurposing.

Judging will begin at 2 pm. and prize will be awarded before 3.

Good Luck!
