Scrap Metal Copper Art

Sullivan’s Scrap Metals recently had the honor of seeing some of our scrap copper artfully crafted into a metal masterpiece!

A new exhibit entitled Salv. by artist Lily Cox-Richard, includes a few works containing old copper metal pieces – one specifically from Sullivan’s scrap yard. The exhibit is located in Artspace. San Antonio, Texas and features three works on display as follows:

  1. Old Copper Futures: 1200 lbs. of #2 scrap copper from Monterrey Iron & Metal, San Antonio, TX, 2016 (copper, steel, yoga mats, 48 x 22 x 26 inches)
