Seeing Visions with the storm drain artists

Join us at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, for an evening with the storm drain artists!

Artwork by Lisa Bartlett.
For this year's Roots and Blues festival Thumper Entertainment worked with seven local artists to create awareness among Columbia citizens of the effects of dumping and pollution in our storm drains. The artists painted an original and creative series of storm drains in high traffic areas in The District.

The goal was to educate people on keeping our storm water drains clean, as polluted runoff is the nation's greatest threat to clean water. Come talk to the artists, hear their stories, and see images of the finished works that resulted from this fine community art project.
