The College Park Partnership is getting downright artistsic with its ongoing Dumpster Art project.
The Partnership reached out to the local arts community with a creative challenge: add some art and visual pleasure to something most people avoid looking at: a trash dumpster.
The idea was to make College Park look more appealing, and to provide a venue for neighborhood artists to show what they can do.
One of the dumpsters in on Smith Street, next to the Truffles & Trifles store and across the street from Downtown Credo. The College Park Partnership Design Committee co-chairs, Carmen Dick and Kim Foy, reached out to artist Kim Turner of Soggy Dog Studios, who volunteered her time and talent to design and paint that City of Orlando dumpster.
"We wanted the art to be something fun that also represented College Park," said Andrea Kudlacz, executive director of the College Park Partnership.
