Getting TRASHed on the Mountains of Aspen
TRASHed hit the slopes January 29th - February 2nd, 2005 with ESPN to run the Art of Recycling Winter X Games Nine in Aspen, Colorado. TRASHed, a campaign developed and executed by Fashion Peace, hosted a media reception and open exhibit for the public with the 10 original pieces of art designed on 96 gallon recycling recycling bins The prestigious crew of artists included Mark Hoppus of Blink-182, Pro Snowboarder Tricia Byrnes and RVCA's own George Thompson. The crew was headlined by Hunter S Thompson himself. Sadly, Mr Thompson pasted away a few week later... but his spirit and creativity will be long remembered.
Special thanks to ESPN and Molly McDonald for their assistance and generosity
