Paint Out Pollution coming to Jefferson Park this Saturday

The Friends of Jefferson Park is proud to announce that 6 of its storm drains will be artistically stenciled on Saturday, November 4th, to discourage placing trash and pollutants into park storm drains. Paint Out Pollution is a project recently launched by the James River Association and Art on Wheels in partnership with local governments of the Richmond region. The goal of the project is to increase awareness of storm-water pollution and celebrate the native plant and animal species of the James River through storm drain art. Volunteers use stencils and spray paint to install art on storm drains. The James River Association and Art on Wheels are working with the City of Richmond to plan installation events in Richmond’s East End this fall.
