The NYC Department of Sanitation is seeking volunteer artists for Trucks of Art, a new public art project to transform 23-ton collection vehicles into roving works of art. These heavy-duty machines offer nearly 400 square feet of “canvas,” and artists may leverage the trucks’ sides, front and back in their works.

Trucks of Art will highlight the importance of sustainability and honor New York’s Strongest, the workforce that keeps New York City healthy, safe and clean – while adding a bit of flair to neighborhoods as we serve them. Because the Department is leading New Yorkers to send zero waste to landfills, artists are challenged with utilizing paints that would otherwise be discarded or recycled.

To apply, email your concept in PDF format to by 11:59pm on March 31, 2019. Please see attached for the submission requirements.

Any questions concerning this RFEI should be sent by email with the subject line “Trucks of Art RFEI Question” to Questions and answers will be posted at
