Artists Wanted!

The City of Valdosta and the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts invite artists and artist teams to submit their conceptual designs to be considered for a public Dumpster Art project as part of the 2016 Georgia Cities Week activities. Selected artists will have the opportunity to kick off Georgia Cities Week in Valdosta by artistically painting designs that celebrate life in the city on three dumpsters located in the downtown area.  

Artistic work will be accomplished onsite, April 16-17. The Dumpster Art will be displayed for a full year, providing beautiful visuals for downtown visitors and significant exposure for the artists. The artists will oversee the fabrication of the public art. Completion of the project is expected by April 17, at 5 p.m.

The deadline to apply is April 8, 2016, by 5 p.m. There is no artist fee. Paints and some supplies provided. Dumpsters will be steam cleaned and will receive a coat of primer and blue base paint prior to the start of artists’ work. Artists should have experience with creating work on life-sized canvases.
