The ArtLife WPB Committee seeks Palm Beach County artists to create and paint unique designs that bring awareness to the importance of the city’s stormwater inlets.

The City of West Palm Beach’s ArtLife Committee is partnering with Public Works, Public Utilities, Sustainability, and the Community Events department to bring awareness to our downtown/Clematis Street storm water inlets. This will be a one-day public art event scheduled for Saturday, February 5th, 2022, during the city’s Green Market.

The goal of this public art project is to bring visual attention and raise awareness about the importance and function of the stormwater inlets. What goes down the drains affects our water systems: litter, trash, and cigarette butts. To start this awareness campaign, the city is focusing on the 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 blocks of Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach. The ArtLife Committee will select and invite five local artists (one for each block) to design and install an artwork around the storm water inlets.

DEADLINE: November 30, 2021
