LOS ANGELES As the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival approaches in April, organizers are planning some new programs—for instance, Goldenvoice's recession-appropriate layaway ticket-buying option—as well as continuing some well-received ongoing ones, like the recycling effort that will enter its sixth year. To spruce up the offerings, Coachella-affiliated activism org Global Inheritance is inviting local artists to submit their work to be considered to design one of the 24 recycling bins featured at the festival. Bins that it deems “non-offensive" will go to the Los Angeles Unified School District after the event. This month, the group is selecting 24 artists and three alternates to redesign 96-gallon recycling bins. Winning artists will receive a pair of tickets for this year's festival.
