Trashy Treasures and Contain It! are provocative titles of dual events at Dunedin Fine Art Center that are anything but. Both have been fun and successful fundraisers for several years and utilize the center and its lovely lakefront grounds. Trashy Treasures inside offers donated art and art supplies (someone else’s trash — get it?) at a silent auction on Friday and a “garage sale” on Saturday. Contain It! consists of PODS units scattered about the grounds in which artists and art collaboratives create environments, a form of installation art that has become popular internationally.

Practical issues of hunger and thirst are covered by food trucks and, new this year, a selection of craft beers.

Admission is free on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. . Dunedin Fine Art Center is at 1143 Michigan Blvd. For information, call (727) 298-3322 or visit dfac.org.
