Local gallery buys unwanted art, upcyles it into new pieces

An art gallery in northeast Minneapolis sponsored an art buy-back where they purchased unwanted art for $1 and upcycled it into something new.

- Inspired by dentists who buy back candy at Halloween and gun buy-back programs, a local art gallery sponsored a similar program – an art buy-back.

Kolman and Pryor Gallery in northeast Minneapolis gave people $1 in exchange for each piece of unwanted art they dropped off. Artists then "upcycled" the unwanted art pieces into something new.

Fox 9 morning reporter M.A. Rosko shows us the "before" and the "afters" of the art upcycle project.
