Storm Drain Mural Project

The City of Cedar Rapids joins Iowa BIG and the Downtown District to recruit artists to paint 7 storm drains downtown. The goal is to add beauty downtown and also educate the public that what goes in the storm drains goes straight to the river.

Selected artists will complete their mural during the week of May 14–18. Artists will receive $400 upon successful completion of mural.
