A live interactive painting event at Station Square!

Over the years almost 40 dumpster and recycling bins have been transformed into works of art adding to the beautification of the Fernie community. At this live painting weekend, artists will prep dumpsters and start painting on the evenings of Thursday and Friday, with pop-up DJs building the atmosphere. The main event is on Saturday from 4-9pm with a beer tent, DJs, kids crafts, and chance for all to join in painting the community Dumpster.

Come out to watch artist's visions come to life and vote for your favorite - there's a $500 people's choice award up for grabs for the winning design.

Out of the Box is intended as a way for our regional art community to bring beauty and creativity to a seemingly mundane item like a trash dumpster. Once completed the dumpsters are placed around Fernie for all to enjoy.

Project facilitation is provided by the Fernie & District Arts Council and a volunteer committee. The commercial dumpsters have been generously donated by Southeast Disposal.
