Call to artists: Design a Truckee storm drain

Staff report

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The town of Truckee is sponsoring an artist to design the concept and paint a storm drain, with the goal of showcasing storm drains that flow directly into the Truckee River.

According to a news release, the town would like to “provide a creative solution to inform residents to not dump anything down the storm drains, and to remind them doing so harms our natural environment.”

The project will be held in two phases: submission and selection of design proposals; and painting of the storm drain.

The budget for the project will be $1,000, according to the town, which will cover the cost of buying materials, and remuneration for the artist.

The drain is located next to the new Brickeltown Project, at the corner of Donner Pass Road and Spring Street.

Submissions must be received by March 15 at 5 p.m. This is not a postmark deadline. No faxes, emails, or late entries will be accepted.

Mail or deliver material in one envelope to: Marine Dageville, Town of Truckee, 10183 Truckee Airport Road, Truckee, CA 96161.
