What To Expect
Anchoring the event is a Salvage Design Competition that calls upon local designers in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast to create furniture, lighting and functional art wholly out of salvage materials. Juried by a team of professional designers, architects, artists and sustainability experts, the competition challenges both the designers and event patrons to discover that one’s trash can turn into another’s treasure.
Each piece is judged on craftsmanship, creativity in the use of salvage materials, functionality and overall aesthetic. Six top prizes are awarded, including Best in Show, and all pieces are auctioned in support of both the designers and the Green Project.
