Enhanced Thrift Art

Enhanced Thrift Art is an exhibition of artwork, with each visual art entry beginning as a piece of art or article found at a thrift store/yard sale or in a long ago forgotten storage area. The goal is to give neglected and abandoned art a makeover. The display will showcase two- and three-dimensional entries that include, but are not limited to pictures, sculptures, clothing, or jewelry.

JOIN US FOR THE OPENING ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8 FROM 5:30-7:30 P.M.
