Scrap metal as art: sculptures made of iron will reappear in the city Day

28 July

sculpture Festival from scrap will be held in the Ural capital in celebration of the 293-th anniversary of Yekaterinburg.

the Event will be held on August 27 and will complete a series of festive events. The start of the festive program planned for 14:00. The event will be sponsored by the Department of culture of Administration of Ekaterinburg.

the Festival of contemporary art will take place this year in the Ural capital already for the eighth time. It was first organized in 2009 in order to show to citizens as waste are transformed into works of art.

Traditionally, the jury will determine the winners in two nominations: "the Best piece of art out of scrap metal” and “Most original art using scrap metal”.

the festival will traditionally come to painters and sculptors from different corners of Russia and other countries of the world, who can pass on their view of the world through sculptures created from scrap metal. This year organizers of the festival promise once again to surprise the audience with unconventional works and scope: the festival will again appear not only small but also quite large-scale pieces.
