Out of the Box & On the Sidewalk
I was honored to be chosen by the City of Springfield to participate in the “Upstream Art Project” which allowed me to paint a mural right on the sidewalk! This project is an effort to raise awareness regarding storm drain pollution and habitat protection.Hey, I didn’t know that the water flowing through storm drains goes straight into our rivers and streams unfiltered and untreated! So it was an education for me as well as the many folks who stopped by to ask questions. After 14 hours over 2 days, and an aching back, this 5′ X 7′ painting was complete. It can be seen between the Springfield City library and the Springfield museum on 6th street.
