The Green Project’s mission is to cultivate a culture of creative reuse and build a marketplace for reclaimed materials. “Salvations Exhibition + Auction” exemplifies this mission in real time by pairing reclaimed materials with beautifully crafted, one-of-a-kind design as featured in the fundraiser’s main event, the Salvage Design Competition. The event was hosted at the Marigny Opera House, neighbors to the Green Project’s home. More than 30 pieces of handcrafted furniture, lighting and art were exhibited and auctioned as the culmination of the competition. Each piece was made by local artists using only locally sourced, reclaimed materials. 

The winners were: Best in Show: Another Time by Audiowood; Best Craftsmanship: Breakfast with Termites by Chemical 14; Best in Creative Reuse: High Lustre by Bryan Bradshaw & John Mouton; Best in Furniture: The Beatle Seat by Beatle Wood Works; Best in Lighting: Sound of Light by Studio de Cava; Best in Dimensional Art: Fleur de Love Blind Design by Adam & Gina Dugger and Best in Functional Objects: Macrame Folding Screen by Saynomore Studio & N.O. Finer Fibers.

The Salvage Design Competition Judges were BOA, Founder & Creative Director of OI Studio; Joel Pominville, Executive Director of AIA New Orleans and New Orleans Architecture Foundation; Susan Langenhennig, Director of Communications at Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans; and Bryon Cornelison, Director of Special Projects, Office of Mayor Latoya Cantrell. 

The event featured food by 1000 Figs. Cocktails were provided by Belle of the Bar and made possible by Republic National Distributing Company. Local beer was provided by NOLA Brewing. The Green Project sponsors included Wisznia Architecture + Development, GoodWood NOLA, Hancock Whitney, AOS Interior Environments, New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles, AIA New Orleans and Art+Design Magazine.
