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 http://bit.ly/stormdrainstyleoff 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.
