To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the last time that the Cuyahoga River caught on fire in 1969–which contributed to the establishment of the U. S. Environmental Protection Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act in the late 60’s and early 70’s– The Friends of Euclid Creek, the Collinwood Painted Rain Barrel Project, and the City of Beachwood are sponsoring a Rain Barrel Painting Competition! Twelve artists’s designs will be selected and commissioned to paint their designs on rain barrels; and, when completed, the barrels will be exhibited in the gallery space at the Beachwood Community Center. Commissioned artists will be given a 55 gallon rain barrel on which to complete their design, and paid $100 for their finished barrels. The barrels will be auctioned via a silent auction during the course of the art exhibit with the proceeds benefiting the Friends of Euclid Creek Conservation Fund. Valuable prizes will be awarded to the top three designs in the categories of Professional Artist, Amateur, and Child artist as determined by a Jury of local artists and arts professionals.

To submit a design proposal, it must be postmarked or hand delivered to: Susan Merdler, Program Coordinator, Beachwood Municipal Complex at 25325 Fairmount Blvd. Beachwood Ohio, 44122, by 3 pm on Friday, May 3, 2019.
