Over 200 people attended the 2018 Drain Smart Meet the Artists Celebration at the Centre at University Park on June 26. 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. Checkout photos from the event by Susan Williamson. Vote online now through July 26. The top three vote-getters win prize money.
