What We Do

Upcycle Arts is Charlotte's first creative reuse center. Upcycle Arts collaborates with Charlotte manufacturers, businesses, and individuals to divert their materials from the landfill. Those materials are then available to the community for use in new ways such as mixed media arts. We connect to the community through our creative reuse center and our programming.

Interesting Info
  • We are Charlotte's first creative reuse center (it's a thrift store for art supplies)
