As a community member, student, teacher, and business or homeowner owner, you can design the artwork and paint your neighborhood stormdrains. The Stormdrain Art Project is a way to bring positive messaging about stormwater and stormdrains through art. Starting 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 the start of 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 stormdrain art installation was added to the 12 established. We hope to continue to grow this program!
