Trash or Art?

While on a routine walk with my pup through our neighborhood in downtown Baton Rouge, LA, we were lucky enough to stumble upon what I thought was an art installation in between two buildings. Upon further investigation, I quickly realized that this was not an art installation, but rather an art piece that was thrown away in a dumpster that some how created a beautiful composition in an otherwise ugly setting. I later learned the balloon piece was created by Baton Rouge Balloons, used by someone in the neighborhood that weekend and then thrown away Sunday morning. I asked myself, can dumpsters become art? Can we rethink the way we collect trash and place these large boxes in our urban spaces? Let's go to the drawing board and find out!
