Metamorphose challenged artists of all ages to be inspired by works that didn't sell at St. Vinnie's, or were rejected from the get-go. Amazing things came of it! Adult artists Alina Padilla-Miller and Mike Yager took home $100 prizes in Viewers' Choice and Judges' Choice, respectively. Viewers' Choice $50 prizes in the youth category went to, starting with 1st: Willow Chester, Julia Scher and Hannah Alvis. Winners in Judges' Choice, in order: Willow Chester, Marston Scher, Haylin Alvis. Another $50 each! Congratulations to these and all the artists who made Metamorphose a true Earth Day celebration.
Earlier this spring our Metamorphose designers descended upon a pile of textile remnants that had been recycled by the San Francisco garment district, and other art accessories that didn't -- or wouldn't -- necessarily sell in St. Vinnie's stores. Here is a sampling of the images by Rob and Tracy Sydor of Digital Latte.
