Rise to the Creative Reuse challenge

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 by Tai Moses

Austin Creative Reuse has closed during the pandemic, but that doesn’t mean the folks who run the nonprofit have taken off their thinking caps. On the contrary, they must be thinking harder than ever, because they’ve decided to reopen their Reuse and Rethink Challenge, a contest “to recreate your favorite Austin mural or landmark from any items (or people) you have in your home.” (See the images for examples.) There are some very basic rules: 1) You must use/reuse only material you find in your home; 2) submissions will be judged on creativity, workmanship and use of reused materials; and 3) you must meet the deadline of April 30.  Winners get a $10 gift card to use when Austin Creative Reuse reopens. Email two photos of your submission along with a brief description of materials used and your contact info to
