Trash to Treasure Art Auction

On September 23, the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) will host a silent auction to benefit the Atlanta Beltline. The Trash to Treasure Art Auction will take place at the Knoll Showroom on Howell Mill Road at 7pm. The auction’s bid items are a collection of artworks created from discarded objects and materials by local artists and designers.

Atlanta’s future BeltLine is a network of linear parks and light rail tracks that encircle the city’s center. The BeltLine is a 22 mile corridor that follows intersecting historic railroad tracks and connects 45 Atlanta neighborhoods. This project is one of the largest redevelopment plans in the country and is expected to cost $2.8 billion. Although the project will take advantage of federal, state, and local funds, the BeltLine requires private funding, as well. Proceeds from the IIDA’s Trash to Treasure Art Auction will help support the development of Atlanta’s BeltLine. Trash to Treasure attendees will have the opportunity to bid on artwork, drink cocktails, enjoy hors d’oeuvres from Endive, and listen to a live performance.

The International Interior Design Association is a group of design professionals devoted to creating a unified voice for interior designers, improving interior environments, and promoting knowledge of the profession. The host for the event, the Georgia Chapter of the IIDA, provides opportunities for local design professionals to interact, attain recognition for their work, and continue with their educational development.
