Forklift Kickstarts 'Trash 2,' and Austin artists get to hit the boards
• Want to see your artwork on a billboard? Austin Art Boards, a competition sponsored by Reagan National Advertising along with the Austin Visual Arts Association, is giving 10 local visual artists a shot at just that. Any visual artist in Travis, Hays, or Williamson counties may submit one original work in any medium (photographs of sculptural pieces are accepted), sized to 6-inch-by-24-inch scale. All submissions will be displayed on the contest's website and Facebook page. One week after the June 24 deadline for entries, a panel of local artists will determine the winners, which will then be displayed on billboards around the city as space is available later in the summer.
