Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity ReStore will collaborate with regional artists for their third “Home is where the Art is” ReStore Recycled Art Show and Silent Auction on February 2, 2013 at the Spirit Room Gallery in downtown Fargo. The art will be on display at the Spirit Room starting Monday, January 14. “Home is where the Art is” showcases recycled art, utilizing materials from the Habitat ReStore, a home improvement and building supplies thrift store located in Moorhead. The event gives local artists and art-appreciators a chance to give back to the local community while enjoying original and environmentally-friendly works of art. All proceeds will support Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity’s mission of building simple, decent and affordable homes for families in Cass and Clay counties. Artists had until November 29 to shop at the ReStore and turn home improvement materials into art. Art pieces are available for viewing starting January 14 at the Spirit Room. The Spirit Room is located at 111 Broadway, Fargo and open to the public 12pm – 4pm Monday-Friday and 1 pm – 5 pm on Saturdays. “It’s very exciting to see what artistic minds in our community can create out of the everyday materials found at Habitat ReStore,” said Katie McCormick, Program Coordinator with Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity. “We are looking forward to showcasing the pieces at this year’s event with proceeds supporting the construction of homes in our community.”
Tickets for the Home is Where the Art is event can be purchased for $15 on Fargostuff.com, at the Lake Agassiz Habitat ReStore or at the Spirit Room, or they can be purchased at the door for $20.
