Eleven exuberant teams competed in the third annual Junk 2 Genius Team Art Competition, which took place last Friday near the Davis Art Center’s outdoor stage in Community Park. The event, co-sponsored by the Davis Art Center and reCREATE of Roseville, raised more than $5,000 to support Art Center programs.

The theme of this year’s contest, announced just before the competition started, was “Natural Wonders.” Each team received a box of recycled materials and also picked from a pile of one-of-a-kind discarded items. Teams had two hours to turn their “junk” into an art masterpiece.

In the meantime, spectators enjoyed beer, wine and food, music provided by KDVS, and a surprise Pamela Trokanski Flash Mob dance.

Competition judges were designer Diana Coss, installation artist Alex Bohnak and photographer Marcia Ruth. Morse Remodeling Inc. was chosen as the overall winner for its colorful sculpture of Mother Nature. University Retirement Community won the People’s Choice Award, voted on by spectators, for its piece, “Faces of Retirement: We Are the Wonders of the World.”

“My staff has enjoyed being a part of this fundraiser for the past three years,” said Marty Morse, owner of Morse Remodeling. “It’s a fabulous team-building activity as well as a ton of fun.”

Morse took home the Trophy du Trash, created by metal artist Terrence Martin, for one year, when it must be returned to the Art Center for the next contest.

Amazing artworks also were created by Blue Oak Energy (volcano sculpture), Brooks Painting (party at Stonehenge), BTV Development (dinosaur), Cable Car Wash (Garden of Eden), Davis Ace Hardware (tree with light-sensitive bird), Davis Food Co-op (nature scene), Gold Standard Diagnostics (Yosemite scene with waterfall), Pacific McGeorge Law Students (carnivorous flower) and Team Davis (pterodactyl).

All sculptures will be on display in the Art Center’s gallery, 1919 F St., through Sept. 23. Gallery hours are 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays. For more information, call the Art Center at (530) 756-4100.
