Dallas’ Sanitation Services is issuing a call for artists to paint original artwork onto recycling dumpsters as part of their Art for Dumpsters project. Five artists will be selected to paint the dumpsters during the Deep Ellum Arts Festival. Each artist (or artist team) will receive $2,250, and $250 for supplies. (They’ll also buy lunch!) The best-in-show winner will be awarded an additional $1,500. Submissions are due by March 18. For more info, go here.
