Sponsor a Trash Can in Downtown!

Help adorn our city by sponsoring a NEW Trash Can in downtown Anchorage! We are looking for sponsors to help pay for the decoration and upkeep of each container for a total of 2 years. We have the ability to take each artist’s work or photography and create a wrap that can be replaced if tarnished or destroyed. Each Trash Can will showcase your very own artwork or support the work of a local artist! Decorating each can will help beautify the sidewalks of Downtown Anchorage and showcase our city in a unique way. We look forward to working with you! Read more to view the sponsorship packet.
