In September, four artists will be painting downtown Eugene storm drains with images informing people about the connection between our stormwater system and local creeks and rivers.
To be considered for this project, artists must submit a detailed drawing of their proposed artwork that illustrates the theme: Clean Rivers Start Here
Each artist will receive a $1,000 stipend for their work. Artists must complete their artwork on September 21 and 22 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, August 20.
Anything on your roof, driveway, lawn and garden can be washed into a storm drain and end up swimming with the fishes. Follow these tips to reduce the pollution running off your property.
