ORB365: a community art collaborative

Superior residents, businesses, classrooms, and organizations are encouraged to join the ORB365 community art collaborative! steve-flike-2-01.28.2021

Participants will pledge to use less water or prevent water pollution for the year. The participant's pledge is symbolized by ice orbs whereas each ice orb represents each day of the year that clean water is important to them. The community goal is to make 365 ice orbs!

 The ice orbs will be used to create a community art sculpture as part of the 2023 Lake Superior Ice Festival. The sculpture will be in the shape of Lake Superior; our drinking water source.

Pledge examples:  I pledge to pick up trash on daily walks and to recycle.
