Love that name! It's the name of the first team of artists to register for this year's Found Art Challenge at the Creston Museum. I know what the "found" objects are that they'll be using to create a piece of garden art, but I have no idea how the Junkies are planning to transform them - all they've said is that it will involve power tools and probably some random paint.
What is a "Found Art Challenge?" Well, from our point of view, it's how we get rid of some of the rusty useless junk and many-duplicated objects that find their way into every community-museum collection. For the artists, it's a chance to get creative and turn that junk into something cool - in this case, a piece of garden art for an empty spot in one of the Museum's flower beds. Quite a prominent spot, actually - it's right outside the main entrance.
In addition to the Artifaction Junkies, I know there are three or four other teams of artists who are planning to take part - and everyone is welcome, either as creators or spectators. So check it out, and come on down!
