Trash is Beautiful




As part of Monument Lab, a public art and history project produced with Mural Arts Philadelphia on display through November 19, Recycled Artists in Residency (RAIR) will host its fourth annual Trash Bash and Silent Auction on November 15 at Crane Arts. This animated, fun-filled evening will include a VIP reception before the event at 5:30 p.m., where guests have first access to bid or buy-it-now on an array of works by local artists, Trash Boutique items and Philly-centric packages and experiences.

Monument Lab is a citywide conversation about history, memory and our collective future regarding who we want to honor in public spaces and the untold stories that need to be told. It features temporary public art in 10 locations across the city created by 20 artists, and more than 20 events in the communities in and around the installations.
