Above: Out of the Box Dumpster Project 2015
I’ve been participating in the Dumpster Art Project for a few years now and this year I will once again paint a garbage bin. Each year I’m more and more hesitant to join because Dumpster Art day always falls on the hottest day of the summer and my bin is always in the sunniest part of the street. I’m not so good with direct sunlight for 8 hours straight, especially now that I’m living with vitaligo. This year, however, The Arts Station has changed things up a bit. It’s now an evening affair with a DJ and beer tent and good chill vibes. I’m extremely happy with this decision. So, if you’re looking for a cool night out on June 30th, myself and a handful of other local artists will be tackling some enormous blank canvases and could use a little heckling.
From The Arts Station’s website: “The Arts Station in partnership with The City of Fernie is pleased to announce a Call for Entry for the 5th Annual; ‘Out of the Box: A Dumpster Art Project’. Out of the Box is a project in which 6-12 commercial trash and recycling dumpsters are transformed into works of public art by regional artists. The dumpsters will be painted in a live art event from 4-9pm on June 30th, with live music and a bar in Station Square.”
