About the Festival


Drap-Art, based in Barcelona, showcases accomplished international artists who create provocative and compelling art from reused materials. Having exhibited across multiple continents for 15 years, Drap-Art will host its North American premiere at the Re:NEW festival in Pittsburgh, September 2016.

Featuring group exhibitions of art and design made from repurposed materials; interventions in public spaces; discussions and panels; an artists’ market; hands-on workshops; and performances, Drap-Art Pittsburgh will be a month-long celebration in the PPG Wintergarden in Downtown Pittsburgh, opening September 9, 2016.

Drap-Art’s recent Barcelona showcase attracted 10,000 visitors to experience artists, musicians, educators and designers – all promoting environmental and sustainability ideas through artistic expression.
