Look out for new street art under your feet! As part of the Green City, Clean Waters art contest, students from K-12 illustrated ways we can keep pollution out of our storm drains. In addition to being featured in the Green City, Clean Waters calendar, the art work of each grade's first place winner will be enlarged and placed on city streets as a friendly reminder to stop pollution. As a test, the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, on behalf of Philadelphia Water Department, put down large storm drain art in Schuylkill River Park and Vernon Park. These visually inspiring art works by Frank McShane are just a preview of the student artwork which will grace streets and buses in the early fall.
Be on the lookout if you haven’t seen them yet!
