League of 25 Sculpture Competition Photos

Thursday night was the opening reception for the April exhibits in The Art League Gallery, and it also marked the launch of the League of 25 with a relay-style found object sculpture competition.

The League of 25 is a new society of Art League supporters who pitch in to fund an exhibit while having a little fun, and “Earth” was the first exhibit they funded. Donors were invited to partake in a recycled art challenge as part of the inaugural event. Some of the donors showed up on Thursday ready to showcase their creativity! Donors were divided into two teams, and each team was given a variety of found objects and recycled materials from which to build a sculpture. Each team was given 10 minutes to brainstorm, and then each team member had 2 minutes to make their artistic contribution individually, relay style.

Torpedo Factory artist Lisa Schumaier acted as judge. After a hectic few minutes of planning and frenzied construction, she selected the piece with the branches as the winning sculpture. Members of the winning team received Nancy Reinke woodcut prints, and everybody had a whole lot of fun recycling!
