Power of Change Frederick is a public art project designed to help support our community nonprofit organizations. We're repurposing old parking meters - and asking local artists to paint or embellish them. The finished upcycled meters are placed in local businesses or brought to community events - where admirers are encouraged to contribute their spare change. Those donations create opportunity to impact and drive real change. All the money raised is donated to a local nonprofit. Nonprofit recipients change quarterly.
We have 3 painted meters "on the street" right now, all in downtown Frederick. One inside Federated Charities, one at Give Rise Studio and one at FCB Bank (our first project sponsor).
Additional meters will be placed throughout the city and county as the program expands... And that time is NOW!
We Want You to Paint a Meter
We just received a giant bunch of meters and plan to roll out newly painted meters Spring 2021. Our meters need to stand out!
Will you share your artistic talents while tackling a unique public art project in the process? We'll supply the meter, you supply the talent. We'll share your bio on our website and with signage on the meter. We'll also match a $50 donation in your name to your chosen nonprofit... that's $100 back to our community in your name!
Help us amplify the power of change!
