Artful Trash Cans

providence2006-27.jpgSpotted in Providence, RI - public trash cans as an art form!  These are made at an art colony called The Steel Yard.  The one labeled "Met" was produced by students from a charter school (at-risk kids, I think), and it graphically represents their school values.  ("Liberty" represented by a broken chain). 

My tour of the Steel Yard, and other artist-led redevelopment efforts in Providence, was part of the 14th Congress for the New Urbanism, the world's premier gathering of urban designers and advocates.
