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.
Masked up and socially distanced, there will be kid-friendly stuff to do. Paint a canvas, make chalk art, drop in for a hip hop class or enjoy a kombucha.
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.
