Trash barrels as art projects

Liberty High School art students have been using unusual canvases
this summer to promote a cleaner, more beautiful community.

Five new metal trash barrels decorated with the students’ creative
artwork are ready for placement at the Liberty Skate Park and
Liberty High School athletic campus, pending donations for dome

A collaboration between the Liberty High School Art Department,
Sullivan Renaissance and Liberty Parks and Rec., this project was
made possible through the help of the community:

• The metal barrels were donated by alumni, Joe and Rich Kavelski
of Foam Gods.
• The primer was donated by a parent.
• The pick-up and delivery of the cans was done by Liberty Parks
and Rec.
• The barrels were prepped by Thallman’s Garage.
• The paint was funded through the Sullivan Renaissance.

Art teacher Jennifer Bull spearheaded the project and assisted the
students in their custom designs. The barrels, pictured below,
were painted by Lexi Sisselman and Taylor Arpino (school mascot);
River Lounsbury and Camryn Santillo (black and white logo);
Madison Johnstone and Kristen Brooks (flowers); Breanna Jackson
and Sean McMahon (skate park); and Heather Stein and Kateryna
Vanname (maroon logo.)

The art department is currently seeking donations to be used
toward purchasing dome lids for the barrels. For more information
