Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Management is putting out a call to local artists who will work on this year’s rain barrel project. There is a Friday February 14 deadline to apply to paint the barrels that will be auctioned off in May as a fundraiser for environmental programs in the Clarke County School District.

ACC Stormwater is looking for local artists who would like to transform ordinary rain barrels into functional pieces of art! These painted barrels will be auctioned off in May as part of Roll Out the Barrels, an annual event that raises funds for the ACC Green School Program (an initiative to promote environmental education in our local schools). Barrels and hardware will be provided for selected artists; artists provide their own priming and painting supplies. If you would like to participate, please complete the online interest form by Friday, February 14th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
