So excited to announce that Brendan Lowry (of @Peopledelphia, Rory Creative) and I are teaming up again for a Trashcan Takeover 2.0!

The original #TrashcanTakeover, which you can read more about here, was a temporary art intervention that replaced 18 Center City trashcan ads with art from 18 local artists.

Brendan has been working with the folks at City Fitness again over the last couple of months to look for new opportunities to grow and evolve what we did this past summer, and I can not wait to share with y’all what we have in store!

In the meantime, we’re looking for 30 artists for this second round! Selected artists will be offered a stipend for your participation, and you can either use work you’ve already created or create something new. There will be a tight turnaround though just based on the really unique opportunity we’ve been offered, but the scale of this second round is much wider than our first, so if you were at all interested in what we did last time you’ll love where your art is seen this time.

Philly Artists: If you’re interested in applying to be one of the 30 artists taking part in Trashcan Takeover 2.0, please let us know by filling out this form by the end of the day Thursday, January 3, 2019! That’s less than a week from now! Brendan will be curating the final artists with a tiny bit of help from me, and we’ll notify the selected artists asap.

Stay tuned!
