Design in Motion: The Recycling Truck Project

Over the course of 3 years from 2008 to 2010, as lead artist and instructor as well as students in the Big Picture program, we created vinyl wrap designs for a fleet of 20 Philadelphia Recycling Trucks. Together we created Design in Motion: The Recycling Truck Project, a city-wide public art project produced in collaboration with The Design Center at Philadelphia University and the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and commissioned by the City of Philadelphia Streets Department Recycling Office to coincide with the introduction of Philadelphia's city-wide single-stream recycling program. The twenty recycling trucks feature artwork created by Big Picture students in response to their study of historical and contemporary textiles.
