"Instead of letting something go that has a unique history to the Lansing area, we're actually trying to re-purpose it."

Pieces of an old house could become part of a movie set, or be worked into a piece of art, if people behind Friday's Salvage Summit get their way.

The creative minds are trying to reuse scraps instead of having them dumped in a landfill.

"The real wonderful part of all this is that instead of letting something go that has a unique history to the Lansing area, we're actually trying to re-purpose it to something that is useful and unique and authentic to our area," said Debbie Mikula of the Arts Council of Greater Lansing.

The conference says the interest is there. They just need to find ways to get artists and architects to work out the details with local governments to deal with homes to be demolished.
