The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities in partnership with the DC Department of Public Works offers this call to artists and graphic designers for the Designed to Recycle (DTR) public art project. This joint agency project funds artist designs that transform standard recycling trucks into mobile works of public art by adhering an artistically designed vinyl (digitally printed) to the truck’s exterior. It is the goal of the agencies to outfit fifteen trucks in this cycle.

The Designed to Recycle Public Art Project is currently accepting applications for District of Columbia artists, designers or design teams.

The request for applications can be found here.
