DETAILS on Rain Barrel Painting:

AmeriCorps is hosting a rain barrel auction in June, but we want more than a boring, blue, barrel, blech! We’re looking for artists to volunteer their time to paint a rain barrel to make it unique and decorative!

During the first College Hill Farmer’s Market, with speakers, La Calle, face painting, activity booths, and cornhole games! Watch artists paint the barrels live, along all of College Hill.

Homeowners will bid on the painted rain barrels during the week of College Hill Arts Festival (June 11th – June 17th), and the proceeds will go towards paying for barrels, converter kits, and helping AmeriCorps fund more conservation programming.
