Upstream Art Project in Eugene, Call for Artists

The City of Eugene is launching an Upstream Art Project to help communicate the importance of storm drains, their function, and their connection to our rivers. This is the second year that local artists are invited to paint mini-murals next to downtown area storm drains in Eugene with visual messages about protecting our waterways, stream habitat and aquatic wildlife.
The theme for 2019 is “Clean Rivers Start Here”. There are up to four storm drains identified for the 2019 project. Artist selection will be based on how well the theme is conveyed, how well the artist depicts that storm drains lead to rivers and how well the art encourages the community to help protect local waterways. Each artist selected (up to four total) will receive $1,000 total compensation after the artwork is installed.
Submission of artwork is due by 5 p.m. on August 22, 2019. Artwork must be completed on Monday and Tuesday, September 23 – 24. Anyone interested in participating can find application information
The project is part of the City’s education and outreach efforts to help residents understand that stormwater flows untreated to our local waterways and that everyone has a role in helping to protect rivers.
