Fantastic Cantastic is a new program brought to the community through the Bellevue Neighborhood Association. Sponsored by ArtsWave, this community art project matches artists with Bellevue garbage cans for a make-over. Artists submit designs for approval and once approved, the artist(s) paints the garbage cans. Completed cans will be seen all around Bellevue.
“All paint is supplied by The Bellevue Neighborhood Association, artists just donate their talent and time”, states Bridget Vogt of Bellevue, Kentucky‘s BNA. The goal is to have them finished by Art in the Park in Bellevue on September 12th. If you are interested in participating, contact Bridget through the BNA web site bna-ky.com.
The BNA hopes to complete 10 cans and have 4 artists committed so far. Any group or person can participate. No advertising can be created on the cans. If you can’t paint but want to contribute, the Bellevue Neighborhood Association appreciates donations. All of the can renditions below were created by Mark Kerley.
