Arts group calls for artists to paint storm drains
Whenever it rains, all the water — and whatever else is in the drain, including trash, oil, gasoline, and natural debris — is carried directly to the James River. To raise awareness about the importance of stormwater drains in keeping the James River clean, Lynchburg Water Resources and the James River Council for the Arts and Humanities (JRCAH) are inviting artists to submit designs for storm drain art in downtown Lynchburg.
Six locations have been selected near Miller Park in Lynchburg and artists are invited to submit paintable designs that embody the following themes: stormwater pollution: “Only Rain Down the Drain;” environmental protection: “Why clean water is important for everyone;” “We’re all in this together;” James River/Lynchburg Ecosystem: Local wildlife/habitat, natural beauty; community connection; and Lynchburg local history.
Entries must be submitted by Aug. 30. For more information visit: www.jamesriverarts.net/storm-drain-art-project.
