The painted barrels will be on display along Main Street in the Carmel Arts & Design District starting with the August 13th Gallery Walk and throughout the following week. On Saturday August 20th the barrels will be displayed at the Carmel Farmer’s Market and a silent auction will be held with net proceeds benefitting the Carmel Clay Parks water information signage.
Artists are asked to paint a rain barrel with an original design. Artwork does not need to have an environmental theme. However, designs of political, religious or sexual nature are not permitted. The rain barrels will come primed, thanks to the generous in-kind support by Carmel businesses Touch ‘N Go Collision and Sherwin-Williams and will be ready to be painted by artists.
Interested artists are encouraged to visit the Artist Info Page at www.RainOnMain.com or contact the Hamilton County SWCD at email@example.com or 773-2181 for all the details regarding the contest. Once your participation is confirmed, you will be able to pick up a rain barrel. The finished product will be due back no later than July 29.
For more information and to participate in the contest, please contact Claire Lane at 317-773-2181 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information can also be found at www.rainonmain.com.
