Storm drains getting a makeover
Friday, September 18, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
Today the public is invited to check out a project in which 10 storm drains around the city are being painted in order to promote the importance of protecting Austin’s waterways. The SprATX artist collective will paint each drain with a unique design. According to a press release about the project, “The public is invited to watch an artist paint a storm drain in Zilker Park and participate in any of the ten associated Free Art Friday scavenger hunts. Austin residents will also be able to visit the storm drains in person or see a photographic collection on display at the Splash museum by late September. Residents also are invited to share photographs or clean water inspirations by including #creeklove in social media posts.” The painting will take place by the Zilker Zephyr train station on Friday, Sept. 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
