Emerson’s Eco Ambassadors partnered with the Iwasaki Library and the Performing Arts Department’s costume shop to organize an upcycled art competition on Wednesday, March 22.

Students used furniture from the library, fabric scraps from the costume shop, and various other supplies provided by departments to create something new.

Final products were presented by their creators and evaluated by three guest judges: Michael Tucker, senior executive-in-residence, Marketing Communication Department; Homa Sarabi, director of production safety & sustainability, Visual & Media Arts; and Richelle Devereaux Murray, costume shop supervisor and Performing Arts instructor.

Based on the criteria of sustainability, innovation, and artistic skill, the winning piece was an upcycled chair created by Business of Creative Enterprises student Stefani Davila ’24, titled “No Estas Solo” (“You’re Not Alone” in English).
