Deadline for Proposals for Storm Drain Art Projects
February 24, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This spring, the Coastal Watershed Council is working with river neighbors who live on Felker Street, Pryce Street and in the Beach Flats neighborhood to create beautiful, vibrant street art that raises awareness about river water quality and inspires people to take action to protect the river.
Pilot Project Overview:
Storm drains along the San Lorenzo River move rainwater from your street into the San Lorenzo River. These storm drains also collect trash, pet waste, bacteria and polluted urban runoff. The water going into these drains flows directly into the San Lorenzo River and can harm animals and plants. With the support of the City Arts Commission,City Public Works, Arts Council of Santa Cruz County, and Rose Foundation CWC is working to install three storm drain murals in neighborhoods along the river that highlight our river connection. CWC is seeking artists for the Felker Street and Pryce Street murals.
Felker St. Mural Artist Stipend and Materials $2,250
Pryce St. Mural Artist Stipend and Materials $1,000
Additional contingency/stipends if needed: $750
Open to all artists in Santa Cruz County.
Artist/artist teams in which at least one person is fluent in Spanish are preferred.
Experience working with the Santa Cruz Latinx community is preferred.
