Is it trash or is it art?

Screen the Meet the Artist video series, starting online August 7th, 2021 — featuring artists from the hippest, most eco-conscious festival in all of Clark County. See how people, just like you, are giving new life to old items that would otherwise have been buried in a landfill. While we won't be putting on the live festival at Esther Short Park this year, we are putting together video studio tours with some of our artists, giving you an in-depth look at how they turn found and recycled materials into beautiful art! We'll also be adding some new artist info and recycled arts educational information to our site, so you can find some of your favorite artists from past years, and discover some new creations you may not have seen before!

Ultimate Up-Cycle

DeLux house made from shipping container

Relevant Buildings transforms shipping containers into beautiful, sustainable homes that are fully UBC compliant.

They design and build prefabricated residential and multifamily container homes that promote an alternative housing model specifically geared for living in a world of climate change. Units range in size from 320 to 1200 square feet and include modern amenities with net-zero energy options. 

Energy costs are minimized by building smaller homes, over stuffing with insulation, and using high-efficiency ductless mini-split systems for climate control. It is a holistic approach to green living that gives an attractive, affordable option to those that are serious about an environmentally friendly lifestyle. Relevant Building believes that container home living is the ultimate in up-cycling!
