Colorful Dumpsters of Seward, Alaska

You may have noticed the collection of colorful dumpsters along the waterfront in Seward, Alaska. Each dumpster features inspiring messages and artwork that reflect local culture. They were painted by Susan Swiderski for the City of Seward Parks & Rec Department.

Ten years later the dumpsters are showing their age, but still remain a vibrant and welcoming site in the campground areas.
