2014 Artistic Rain Barrel Program: Prairie Theme
For a sixth year, local artists are being challenged to creatively paint rain barrels with a prairie theme to celebrate the important roles that prairies play in water quality. The Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center and the City of Lincoln Watershed Management will select artists based on their applications addressing the prairie theme. Teachers are encouraged to use this activity as a teaching tool in their classroom. A total of 25 artists will be selected for this year's program.
Selected artists have five weeks to paint and return their barrels. During the month of April, the barrels will be on display with interpretative signage at SouthPointe Pavilions and will be available for purchase on the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center website . All proceeds will support the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center educational information for exhibits and other environmental education programs.
