6th Annual Storm Drain Art - Call for Artists!
April 1st - April 30th, 2019
Since 2014, TVWA has invited local artists to submit design proposals for storm drain art in downtown Fairbanks. The purpose of this project is to raise public awareness that ALL storm drains flow directly into the Chena River and to provide an opportunity for artists to create public works of art in downtown Fairbanks. The past art was displayed for one year prior to the construction on Cushman Street (2014), Noble Street (2015), Cowles Street (2016), Gilliam Way (2017), and Barnette Street (2018).
Important information for this year:
Submissions will be accepted April 1st to April 30th.
Storm Drains are located on 5th Avenue.
Artists will paint on Saturday, June 1st from 9am to 1pm (weather permitting).
Winning artists will receive $100 for each design painted and $50 for supplies.
Public voting will be at TVWA's 1st Friday, Open House on May 3rd, 2019
When designing the artwork, artists were encouraged to think of the following three themes.
1. Storm Water Pollution (litter, vehicle fluids, pet waste, soapy water, etc.)
2. Fish, Wildlife, Habitat (moose, beavers, ducks, salmon, grayling, willows, etc.)
3. Quality of Life (clean water for recreation, drinking, natural beauty, etc.)
