Eco Art Market
NOON to SUNDOWN
1020 FRONT STREET, OLD SACRAMENTO WATERFRONT
This Eco-Art Market known as Upcycle Pop is an outdoor art market for eco-friendly art, and creatively upcycled items located in the historic district of the Old Sacramento Waterfront. The market happens every Saturday at the Atrium, 1020 Front Street, Sacramento’s Creative Innovation Center for Sustainability.
This is a fun place to meet Sacramento local makers and watch these eco artists create works of art from discarded items.
If you’re not up on the green lingo, and are asking what is upcycling? The best way to think of upcycling is that it’s like a sexier, even greener version of recycling. Upcycling adds value by transforming or reinventing an otherwise-disposable item into something of higher quality. It’s the ultimate in reuse–and we believe a whole new industry sector is shaping up around it. Old Jeans are turned into reusable shopping bags, pallets turned into urban chic furniture, and plastic bottles into Geodesic Sphere Chandeliers.
But at this market we have a bunch of creative and eco friendly things.
During non-covid times we have live performances, drinks for a good cause, and interactive art installations that educate and inspire sustainable living. We love to remake, play, eat and get creative. When safe, we will be returning our interactive art exhibit experiences.
This is an eco-friendly market and plastic is not welcome unless it has been creatively upcycled. All items must be upcycled, eco-friendly (Canvas Art is welcome).
