CdA Arts Commission seeks Artists for Storm Drain Art

Posted: 4/12/2019 11:12:43 AM
The City of Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission is seeking local artists for “storm drain art” that is aesthetically pleasing and entertaining, while also teaching residents and visitors to our community to care for our treasures – the surface waters of the Coeur d’Alene Lake and the ground water of the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer.  We want to remind people that whatever enters our storm drains flows either to Lake Coeur d’Alene or to a swale, which eventually ends up in our aquifer.  This call is open to artists residing in Kootenai County, Idaho. 

Public art can be a change agent for the community.  It creates and enhances neighborhood and community identity.  It enhances the visual landscape and character of the city.  It turns ordinary spaces into community landmarks and promotes community dialogue and, most importantly, it’s accessible to everyone.

Information packets are available at City Hall, 710 E. Mullan Avenue, or by CLICKING HERE.  Artist proposals are due by 5:00 p.m., May 22, 2019.  Artists with questions are encouraged to contact Amy Ferguson, Arts Commission staff support, at
