Over 200 people attended the 2018 Drain Smart Meet the Artists Celebration at the Heifer Villate on June 27. Guests talked with the artists about their murals, voted for their favorite art, donated to support the project, and learned that you should never litter because trash on the street gets washed into our creeks through storm drains.

Thanks to our caterers: Heifer International, Lost Forty Brewing, and Moon Distributors. THV11's Nathan Scott was the emcee. Thanks also to our 2019 Drain Smart sponsors: Cathead's Diner, Cromwell Architects, Captiol View/Stifft Station Neighborhood Association, Downtown Little Rock Partnership, GBMc, and Ken & Mary Smith. Support for Drain Smart is also provided, in part, by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Thanks to Audubon's awesome partners who help make Drain Smart happen: Arkansas Arts Center, Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, Arkansas Department of Transportation, Audubon Arkansas, Central Arkansas Water, City of Bryant, City of Little Rock, City of North Little Rock, Friends of Fourche Creek, Keep Little Rock Beautiful, Little Rock Parks and Recreation, Little Rock Water Reclamation Authority, The Promenade at Chenal, and THV11.
