Big Belly ArtworkHC HC Double

Walnut Creek Downtown’s 2018 Community Service Day project coordinated community artwork featured on the downtown’s 40 Big Belly waste bins.

WCD conducted a public artist call to gather artwork to be displayed in frames (31 7/16” w x 45” h) attached to the sides of the Big Belly’s as well as the back of the paired units, if logical. Artists were encouraged to incorporate recycling messages into their colorful creations as the newest addition to the City’s public art program. This project was funded by Contra Costa County’s Solid Waste Authority’s Recycle Smart program.
