Snowplow Art: Partnerships in Action
In 2013 the Public Works Department initiated a snowplow art activity with local school districts. The idea of snowplow art came from other cities around the country who shared their concept through the American Public Works Association (see the
for more information).
In 2013, Spring Creek Elementary School in School District 4j and Fairfield Elementary School in Bethel School District participated in the event. It was a learning experience for Public Works staff and the teachers at the schools. But, overall, the children had fun and the artwork they produced was excellent. Bottom line: it was a success, and Public Works plans to continue this activity in future years.
In 2014, Adams Elementary School and Willagillespie Elementary School were selected to paint snow plow blades.
The event is on hiatus this spring but will be offered again to area schools in fall 2015 for display at Public Works Day in 2016.
This web page includes links for more information about snowplow art. It also include photos and videos so you can get a better feel for this activity. If you're interested in having your school participate in the future, work with the staff at your school district, or contact us and we'll get you pointed in the right direction.
