Unexpected Beauty

New York City, January 8th, 2009 – For the first time in NYC, artist C. Finley will be wallpapering two dumpsters outside of the New Museum on Bowery and Stanton from 3-6pm. The Wallpapered Dumpster Project is an inquiry into urban waste, free art, and notions of femininity, beauty and domesticity. Inspired by free and accessible art the artist states, “ I like to think of these interventions as polite graffiti.” This ongoing series of urban interventions will continue in Los Angeles and 10 select cities in Europe through 2010. Previous dumpsters have appeared in Rome and around Los Angeles and have remained wallpapered for up to a year, depending on use and environmental factors.
