Find yourself inundated with extra materials? Looking for something special to complete your thesis project? With the SAIC SURPLUS material exchange program, you can contribute to the recycling of valuable art materials for SAIC students!
SURPLUS is a system for material re-use at SAIC. SURPLUS is a service station where used and excess materials can be made available for other students to take and use for free. Students can bring anything they no longer need-materials, former art projects, etc., (as long as they meet the material guidelines posted) and take away stuff that they can use. SURPLUS provides a constantly changing resource for materials for artmaking, and it keeps quantities of used and excess materials that the school produces out of the landfills.
SURPLUS is located in the Columbus Building basement, Room 030. Materials can only be accepted and picked up during open hours.
Fall 2010 hours are:
Monday: 11-1 p.m.
Tuesday: 12-1 p.m.
Thursday: 12-1 p.m.
Friday: 12-1 p.m.
Material community. Awesome.
