As a community member, student, teacher, and business or homeowner owner, you can design the artwork and paint your neighborhood storm drain(s). The Storm Drain Art Project is a way to bring positive messaging about stormwater and storm drains through art. Start planning your artwork and location with Megan to ensure that you are safely creating at a site with no planned road or sidewalk construction.
This project began in 2014, with six artists installing their paintings around the City of Superior. In 2018, the project added six more art installations from local artists and residents. This year, 2020, one more storm drain art installation was added to the 12 established. We hope to continue to grow this program!
Currently, we are weighing our options to revitalize storm drain artwork and potential future storm drain art projects. We aim to offer a program that works with local artists to showcase their talents and convey messaging to protect our waterways.
