UT students transform scrap metal into masterpieces | News
For months University of Tennessee students have worked on projects for the Dogwood Arts Festival, and on Friday, they finally got the chance to showcase their masterpieces.
The art students unveiled their creations at the Knoxville Convention Center at 11 a.m. Friday. With the help of Gerdau Steel, who donated three tons of scrap metal, students turned recycled metal into art.
The artists said they were thankful for the rare opportunity to get free material for their projects along with the space to display their sculptures.
The sculptures will be on display at the Convention Center through April 19. The Dogwood Arts Festival kicks off next week.
