Trash Art Project
What is the Trash Art Project?

The Trash Art Project is a collaborative effort between the Snowmass Art’s Advisory Board (SAAB) and the Town of Snowmass Village Transportation Department, which aims to bring public art to the Village in places where you would least expect it.  

The Trash Art Project was started after years of focusing efforts on making large art purchases from individual artists to place off the beaten path. Now, the SAAB is shifting their focus towards developing relationships with multiple artists and placing art in public places where people already gather. 

Individual artists will have the opportunity to “muralize” one of the bear-proof trash cans at each of the 16 Town shuttle stops. This is a new, inclusive approach which spreads investment throughout our town, utilizes existing infrastructure and provides great exposure to our locals artists.  The SAAB recognizes that public art builds community, and by supporting local artists, we are making an investment in our Town’s future.

The Board is encouraging local artists to submit proposals with description, bio information and examples of or link to portfolio work.  For more information, please contact us at the information below:
