The Arts Station is pleased to announce a Call for Entry for the 6th Annual; ‘Out of the Box: Dumpster Art Project’. Out of the Box is a public art initiative by the Fernie & District Arts Council 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 artists will be selected from a Call to Artists with a deadline of Thursday, July 30th, 2pm at The Arts Station. Late submissions are absolutely not accepted.
Each prospective artist will submit their Out of the Box Proposal to a panel of adjudicators who will then select the artists that will be given the opportunity to bring their vibrant visions to life by recreating their proposals on the actual dumpsters. The commercial dumpsters have been generously donated by Southeast Disposal. An artist fee of $500 plus materials will be provided to selected artists.
