The Norman Arts Council and City of Norman are inviting local artists to submit designs that will transform city storm drains into works of public art.
This gives artists the opportunity to showcase their skills, while at the same time raising awareness and educating the community about the harmful pollutants that can impact local water quality.
“We want to start a conversation with the community about how we treat our water system and the kinds of things we are putting into our infrastructure,” says Annahlyse Meyer of the City of Norman.
“Anytime we can do a project where we get to beautify the city and kind of create that kind of artistic identity that’s great, but if we can augment that with, you know, some sort of educational component or any number sort of initiatives like that, that’s kind of the perfect marriage for us,” says Joshua Boydston of the Norman Arts Council.
Tomorrow is the deadline for submissions.
