Call for artists for Storm Drain Reveal 2014

James River Basin Partnership (JRBP) and the City of Springfield Department of Environmental Services invite local artists to submit mural designs for Storm Drain Reveal 2014. This innovative project uses creative public murals to raise awareness that storm drains lead directly to our streams and rivers. Submissions will be accepted through Feb. 24. All information regarding the project is available on JRBP's Web site: www.jamesriverbasin.com.

Artists should carefully review the "Call for Artists Instructions" and submit the "Artists Application" available on the Web site. A panel of JRBP and City staff will select 10 designs and notify artists if their design is chosen. Paint and traffic safety cones will be supplied. Murals will need to be completed by mid-April. Submit your idea now and be part of Springfield's public art scene!

For more information, please contact Tiffany Frey, JRBP, at 836-6183 or by e-mail at tfrey@missouristate.edu.
