Artists Sought for Dumpster Murals

A Tucson arts group is seeking artists to paint murals on dumpsters at local businesses. In an effort to curb graffiti, the Tucson Arts Brigade is working with the City of Tucson's Environmental Services department to put murals on five dumpsters. The pilot project will cost about $5,000.

Each artist selected will be paid $850 dollars, and all materials will be supplied. The deadline to submit a proposal is Oct. 23. The City will study the project for one year to see if the murals help curb graffiti.
