Public Art League seeks storm drain artists

From a Public Art League press release:

The Public Art League (PAL), the Champaign County Design & Conservation Foundation (CCDC), the City of Champaign, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are seeking artists to create storm drain murals in our community. Selected artists will create stormwater themed murals adjacent to storm sewer inlets in order to raise awareness about stormwater management in an urban setting.

The mural themes will incorporate and illustrate principals of stormwater management. The murals must also consider and reflect multi-cultural, kid friendly, colorful, funky, and international melting pot characteristics. As public art works, we encourage designs with an exciting, vibrant, and energetic nature.

Additional information and the 2013 Storm Drain Mural Entry Form available here.  The deadline for submission of entries is Saturday, August 10 at 5pm (central).
