For a fourth year, local artists were challenged to creatively paint rain barrels as part of a fun way to educate the community on the benefits of using rain barrels to improve water quality. The Lincoln Children's Zoo and the City of Lincoln Watershed Management chose artists based on their applications. Teachers who applied for their class were required to submit a short description of how they will use the rain barrel as a teaching tool in their classroom. A total of 25 artists were selected for this year's program.

Selected artists had a little over four weeks to paint and return their barrels. The barrels will be on display with interpretative signage at Lincoln businesses and libraries during the months of March and April 2012. On April 22, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., the barrels will be auctioned following an exhibition at the Lincoln City Earth Day. Parking will be limited at Antelope Park, so please plan accordingly. All proceeds will be given the Lincoln Children's Zoo to support summer classes, educational information for exhibits and other environmental education programs.
