Painted Rain Barrel Earth Day Kickoff @GLScienceCtr

Sun 4/6 @ 12-4PM

The Collinwood Painted Rain Barrel Project’s year-long display of barrels painted by local artists moves to its April location, the Great Lakes Science Center, with a special event this week.

To kick off Earth Day month, the project’s founder, artist Linda Zolten Wood, will be at the GLSC all afternoon showing visitors how to conserve water while making a plain old rain barrel pretty enough to adorn the front of your house. She’ll help them to create their own rain barrel designs and to paint a mini-barrel. Dress in old clothes if you want to be part of that! The project’s community partners — City of Cleveland Water Pollution Control and the Cleveland Division of Water — will also offer crafts for kids as well.

Activities are free with regular admission.

The twelve barrels will be on display at the Great Lakes Science Center through the end of April.
