Artworks created from reclaimed trash will be the centerpiece of TRAshART, an art show, festival and auction set for Sunday at Ballestone Manor in Essex.
In April, students from the Maryland Institute College of Arts performed cleanups of Back River and Essex Skypark.
Selected trash items were taken back to the classroom to be transformed into pieces of art. The masterpieces will be unveiled on Sunday.
TRAshART will offer a full schedule of activities, including tours of the historic Stansbury-Ballestone house, music by the General John Stricker Middle School steel drum band and displays of artwork by MICA sculptor Jim Pollock, Towson University and Baltimore County Public Schools students and community members, according to the Back River Restoration Committee website.
The day's menu will include food from Little Havanas, a beer tasting provided by Max's Taphouse and a wine tasting by Will Comotto.
Tickets cost $20. All proceeds will benefit the Back River summer intern program.
