Empire Recycling Corporation and Sculpture Space are teaming up to celebrate Earth Day.

Artists from Sculpture Space gathered salvaged scrap materials from Empire that they'll use to create upcoming sculptures.  In the past, artists have made pieces from discarded aluminum, steel and copper.

The Earth Day Collection will be on display at the 27th annual CHAIRity Art Auction at Sculpture Space on October 1st.  The pieces will be auctioned off to benefit artists' programs at Sculpture Space.

Empire Recycling and Sculpture Space have been working together for over 35 years.
