The Town of Blacksburg is launching a new public arts program centered around local water heritage and water quality. Modeled after a successful program in Richmond, Blacksburg is seeking design concepts from local artists to adorn selected storm drains around town – with a mission to raise awareness about the choices (and changes) we can all make to restore the health of our local waterways.
Artists ages 18+ are invited to submit storm drain designs by Friday, Feb. 2, 2018 in keeping with the following themes:
- The Town of Blacksburg’s Freshwater Heritage
- The Protection of Stroubles Creek
- New River Watershed’s Natural Beauty: local wildlife, healthy habitat & natural beauty
Selected artists will receive a $350 per location stipend for installing their work.
