Sewer Structure Art Project set to begin

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 11:31am

The Wake Forest Public Art Commission (PAC), Greenways Advisory Board (GAB) and Recreation Advisory Board (RAB) are partnering to sponsor a project designed to beautify above-ground sewer structures along the Wake Forest Greenway System.

To kick off the initiative, the three advisory boards are inviting individuals and community groups, including churches, civic clubs and art clubs, to adopt a sewer structure and paint it with a colorful design.

Interested individuals and groups are required to select a sewer structure from among a list provided by the Greenways Art Management Committee (GAMC), a joint committee comprised of members from the PAC, GAB and RAB, and approved by the City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department.

Design proposals must then be emailed to Renaissance Centre Specialist Debra Horton at dhorton@wakeforestnc.gov. The GMAC will review and consider all submissions. Groups and individuals that submit approved designs will receive paint and supplies furnished by the PAC. Paintings must be completed within one month of receiving the paints and supplies, unless delayed by inclement weather.

The GAMC will also supply “Sewer Structure Art Project” temporary signage for each approved individual and group. Finished designs will be reviewed by the GAMC to confirm appropriate content.

All artwork will be considered a voluntary contribution to the community and no compensation will be provided.
