PROJECT: Tire Planters         Back to Top

Regina Holliday - August 2016

In August 2016 in Grantsville, MD, 26 colorfully painted tire planters edged the side of Route 40 and delineated the arts and entertainment district in Grantsville. The students of Grantsville Elementary and local adult artists created the planter art using rice paper and Jacquard's Dye-Na-Flow dyes. Many a town resident commented, “It sure brightens things up!” 

It was a community-wide effort: Guys Tires, Northern Outreach Center, Mountaintop Truck Driving Institute of Garrett College and local citizens donated the tires. Chestnut Ridge Nursery of Grantsville donated flowers for the planters. Local volunteers prepared the tires for display with project facilitation provided by Grantsville artist Regina Holliday. The Greater Grantsville Business Association helped pay for the flowers and the town of Grantsville approved this volunteer public art project during town council meetings. The planters were on display since May 2016, and the colors are still bright!
