The Selection Process

This year’s TRASHed Coachella collection will consist of artwork by 35 artists. The top 3 vote-getters from the online contest will automatically be chosen. The Facebook contest will NOT directly influence the decision for the 32 remaining artists chosen. All other artists will be curated by our internal team, based on a number of variables and factors (including concept, past artwork, diversity of the collection as a whole, appropriateness for the festival and for schools afterwards, etc.). Those artists who are curated may be contacted earlier. The final list of selected artists will be announced February 23.

All confirmed artists will receive a blank 65 gallon recycling bin and a 6″ miniature recycling bin to reimagine and redesign, as well as Weekend 2 Coachella VIP pass.

California Schools

After Coachella, the TRASHed Coachella bins will be donated to K-12 schools across California. If you’re an artist, make sure your designs are school-appropriate! :) If you’re looking to secure TRASHed recycling bins for your school, email us for additional info
