Upcycle St. Clair

Upcycle St. Clair is a project of St. Clair Superior CDC funded by the national ArtPlace funding collaboration. Artplace funds creative placemaking and they believed in our vision to build a new neighborhood along St. Clair Avenue (in the East 60s) using upcycling as the artistic intervention. There’s something special about this area and its longtime community anchors, historic buildings and easy accessibility to the East and West. It was once a thriving spine of the neighborhood and we believe in reclaiming its potential. Our work is creating vibrancy, engaging residents, supporting existing merchants, attracting new ones, creating more colorful streets, teaching upcycling, activating empty spaces, and building community. We’re calling it the St. Clair neighborhood, and we invite you to join us as we work to transform it.

The Upcycle Parts Shop is a creative resuse center that is an integral part of the Upcycle St. Clair project. Their vision is to build a new neighborhood along St. Clair Avenue (in the East 60s) using “upcycling” as the artistic intervention method. A creative reuse center is an organization that specializes in the retail sale of unwanted industrial and residential materials for the purpose of reuse.  Some creative reuse centers also offer hands-on workshops and community events and programming; ours plans to be this type of place.  ReUse Alliance, a national membership association the Upcycle Parts Shop will be joining, has created an overview on creative reuse centers, available here.
