Artwork Interpretation: "Songs for Niah"

"Rainy Day" illustrations from familiar children's songs surround this rain barrel. Ants, an "itsy bitsy" spider, a rainbow, children and an "old man snoring" are colorfully depicted. Working to better the lives of children has long been a focus in Gina's life.

This child-centered theme is designed to engage children in the excitement of using rain barrels for water conservation.
