Turning Trash into Treasure
Turning Trash into Treasure

It’s known that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, but this summer’s Art of the Dumpster exhibit takes this idea to another level.

Commissioned by Power Inn Alliance and curated by the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, this collaborative project showcases the talents of 10 local emerging artists on a very unusual canvas – massive 22 foot long dumpsters. The result: colorful, abstract, interactive, larger-than-life pop-art masterpieces.

Participating artists include Brenda Louie; Nathan Cordero; Waylon Homer; John Berger; Gioia Fonda; Jim Piskoti; Mark Emerson; Joy Bertinuson; Robert Ortbal; and, Susan Silvester.

Encouraging community dialogue and interaction all summer long, Art of the Dumpster kicks off with a preview party today, June 12 from 5pm-8pm, followed by a family‐friendly 2nd Saturday celebration with local food trucks, breweries and entertainment on June 14 from 5pm-8pm. (Other 2nd Saturday celebrations are slated for July 12 and August 9 as well.) The public can also view the exhibit, located at 3101 Power Inn Road, sunup to sundown everyday June 14 through August 30.
