Global Inheritance, the eco-arts group behind the artist-designed recycled bins at Coachella has returned to Miami during Art Basel for their third year with TRASHed Miami.We covered the TRASHed preview in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District before they arrived at Coachella 2013, and Paul Koudounaris snapped shots for us of the bins themselves at Coachella.
My interest in the TRASHed bins began a few years ago when I saw them at both Coachella and the US Open of Surfing. I took personal photographs of them for the art, and started researching more about Global Inheritance who I learned were behind these colorful yet useful recycling bins. Flash forward this year to discover that Global Inheritance is walking distance from where the CARTWHEEL offices are located in the Downtown Los Angeles Art District. Being neighbors enhances our connection with Global Inheritance that began with me seeing how they provide a canvas and exposure for emerging artists, while at the same time supporting recycilng and providing a creative solution to waste.
The TRASHed Miami arts program is open to everyone looking to re-imagine recycling and waste collection and to check out some cool art by this years participating artists including: Mishka, Lamour Supreme, Galen McKamy, JerkFace, Phetus, Sen2, Jryu, Vampy, Carson Catlin, Mad, Scribe, Olivia Bernardy, Darcy Yates, Cesar Torres, Dylan Bradshaw, Jacob Livengood, Brandon Sopinsky, Luis Garcia, Faith Zimmerie, Mayra C. Donate, Nori Pesina, Jyll Ethier-Mullen, Sarah James, Daisuke Okamamote, Maxfield Bala, Ashley Macias and Chris Napolitano.
Past artists include: pro-skateboarder Bob Burnquist, artists from Volcom and RVCA, rock musicians Blink-182, pro-surfer Jodie Nelson, Freestyle Motocross rider Mike Metzger, artists like Mear One and Freddi C., author Hunter S. Thompson, and many more.
Global Inheritance and Kidrobot are inviting all to join them, beginning Thursday, December 5th though Saturday, December 7th in the Wynwood Arts District across the street from the Wynwood Walls where they have set up a studio.
Artists that have been curated by Kidrobot will be painting large and miniature recycling bins. There will be blank mini recycling bins for the public to paint their own for free at the studio, along with a collection of redesigned bins to view, plus there are drinks and an opportunity to learn more about Global Inheritance’s mission to bring recycling initiatives to Miami. The top five mini-bins voted on by people online and at the exhibit will win prizes including festival tickets, skate decks, computer bags, sneakers, and one Grand Prize for the best redesigned mini-bin.
