Pre-Dumpster Day Painting Night & Dumpster Day!

Out of the box Dumpster Art Project Fernie BC - July 9th, 2017

I’m all set to paint a dumpster this Sunday in the blazing hot sun! But because it’s too much work to get done in a day, us painters will be out painting starting Thursday night and each night leading up to Sunday. Friday night there will even be a DJ (DJ Ray) at Station Square making it a little more enjoyable and if you’re downtown you should come say hi.

Dumpster day is truly the best. It’s got a cool block party vibe to it. There will be activities (decorate your own trucker hat being my favourite), button making, spray painting station, music, live painting and who knows what else. It’s so fun. See you there!

Some extra details from Facebook:

“Come down to Station Square on July 9th to see this year’s winning dumpsters painted by our local artists. Enjoy the sounds of Jay Ray’s music, make some buttons with your children at our Kids Art Corner and see the magic of the dumpster transformation!

This year’s artists are: Peggy Black, Brina Schenk, Joey Kosolofski, Dejana Lukac, Tanya Kindrat, Leanne-Raye Timmons, Drew Hampson and Scott Cable.

The Dumpster Painting will coincide with the first Sunday Socials from Fernie Chamber of Commerce so you can enjoy this arts event from within a pedestrianised Downtown.

Out of the Box is a public art initiative by the City of Fernie and in collaboration with Southeast Disposal. Out of the Box is a project in which 10 commercial trash dumpsters will be transformed into works of public art by regional artists.

Out of the Box is intended as a way for our regional art community to bring beauty and creativity to a seemingly mundane item like a trash dumpster.”

Our First Summer Sunday Social

Fernie Summer Sunday Social - Artsy Farsty - Photo Booth 68Photography

Fernie’s Summer Sunday Social is exactly like a block party, only much bigger. It was so great to take my little 3 year old to the street festival (themed Artsy Fartsy) and play with her. We got there early so my pictures make the festival look bare but there were so many people not long after 1 o’clock. There was a photo booth, street hockey, mini golf, bouncy police car, face painting, live painting, rock painting, derby car painting, horse shoes, bean bag toss and smoothie drinking. We did it all! I loved it. Thanks, Chamber of Commerce for organizing this amazing community event.
