Cool Earth Day event: help Bloombars make a sculpture with booze bottles, metal, etc

This is a great idea: partially inspired by the Street Booze game, the good folks at BloomBars and Ann Bouie, a sculptor, are looking to make a "guardian" sculpture for the art space out of liquor bottles, oxidized iron, and more, and they need your help. It's this Saturday from 9 am - 5 pm. They're looking for these items and volunteers for any part of the time:
Participants in BloomBars’ Earth Day art installation are asked to keep an eye out for, and bring:
  • Pieces of oxidized iron, bottle caps and nails no larger than 3 x3”∙
  • Small liquor bottles–preferably glass, not plastic∙
  • Colored ribbon or fabric–preferably red, white, blue, green, yellow and black∙
  • Jute twine∙
  • Small, straight and crescent-shaped twigs
We will need people who:
  • Are handy with a Dremmel∙
  • Can do calligraphy or print beautifully
  • Will work to stabilize the piece in the northwest corner of the patio
  • Can bring positive energy that moves the work along.
Sounds cool!
