Roanoke, VA – As part the Inlet Art Project, five artists have painted stormdrain inlets around the city. During the week of April 21-27 the public will have a chance to vote for their favorite stormdrain inlet artwork through the City of Roanoke’s Facebook page (click here). A ballot will also be available during the Earth Day Roanoke celebration on April 21 in Grandin Village – visit the Roanoke Stormwater tent to cast your vote! The winning artist will receive a People’s Choice Award and $200 and second place will be awarded $100.
The project seeks to transform six stormdrain inlets into works of art, while also raising awareness that whatever goes into the stormdrains ends up directly in our creeks, streams, and the Roanoke River. For more information, contact Susan Jennings, the city's Arts and Culture Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Danielle DeHart, Environmental Specialist with the Stormwater Division, at email@example.com.
