What:  2017 Storm Drain Style-Off call for artists
When: Monday, March 13 through Monday, May 1, 2017

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (March 8, 2017) – The Knox County Storm Drain Style-Off committee is currently seeking artists to paint water quality murals on select Knox County Public Library storm drains. Applications are available online at and are due by May 1.

The Storm Drain Style-off is a public education project to inform the community of the connection storm drains have with our waterways. Knox County has designated 10 storm drains to be painted for this year’s project: five at the Karns Library branch and five at the Bearden Library branch. 

This exciting project gives artists the opportunity to express themselves with semi-permanent public art in the form of small-scale outdoor murals. This project, along with the involvement of our local art community, is unique and will have a positive impact on water quality awareness.
