Pulp Party was a great success on January 14th, 2017!
PULP: Reclaimed Materials Art and Design is a Toronto-based not-for-profit corporation set to encourage community building and environmental awareness. The event combined reclaimed materials installation art, live music, dancing, and charity. In addition to being a fun event that made you think about environmental awareness, it was a fundraiser designed to examine the current life cycle of paper materials (among others) and investigate alternative uses. Each year, the organization supports a Toronto charity. This year, artist Ksenija Spasic worked again with staff and youth at YSM Evergreen Centre, making wearable art for the event. In addition, funds raised during the event will go to Evergreen Centre for Street-Involved Youth. Evergreen Centre for at risk street youth which provides varied and nutritious meals at their youth drop-in centre. Last year they donated over $1500 to the cause.
A sell out crowd filled the “blue box wonderland” that transformed 360 Geary Avenue. The space was filled with the work of 20 artists built out of reclaimed materials, including paper, vinyl records, plastic bottles, styrofoam peanuts and wood palettes just to name a few.
Many thanks to all the artists involved. Here is a taste of some of the sights from that night.
