Out Of The Box Dumpster Project - Paint Dates
Out of the Box: A Dumpster Art Project painting starts this week! Head over to Station Square to check out the artists' progress and perhaps catch some pop-up tunes in the evenings.
Out of the Box is a public art initiative by the Arts Station in collaboration with Southeast Disposal. Project facilitation is provided by the Fernie & District Arts Council and a volunteer committee. Out of the Box is a project in which 10 commercial trash and recycling dumpsters will be transformed into works of public art by regional artists.
The Out of the Box competition will take place on dumpsters within the City of Fernie municipal boundaries and once complete the dumpsters will be placed strategically around Victoria Avenue as well as the Highway 3 corridor. 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.
