Silver Lake's "Art Cans" to be Installed on June 7, 2009!
"The next round of Silver Lake's famed "Art Cans" are almost here!", Project Coordinator Noah Stein announced on May 21st. The concrete trash receptacles are inset with mosaic panels designed by local artists working hand-in-hand with local community groups. The colorful mosaic panels serve a dual purpose of encouraging public art and a cleaver way of taking care of trash in our commercial corridors.
The concrete trash cans are set to be delivered on Wednesday, May 27; the panel installations will begin on Sunday, June 27,2009, starting at 8:30 a.m on Hyperion Avenue. Join the fun beginning about 9 a.m. in front of Trader Joe's where the first can will be installed. The action moves to Silver Lake Dog Park next, before moving on to other installations along Silver Lake Blvd.
