What: 2018 Storm Drain Style-Off call for artists
When: Monday, March 5 through Tuesday, May 1, 2018
KNOXVILLE (March 6, 2018) – 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 and 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: three at the Cedar Bluff branch, two at the Fountain City branch, one at the Halls branch, three at the Howard Pinkston branch and one at the North Knoxville 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 vibrant art community, is unique and has a positive impact on water quality protection.
