Rain barrels can be beautiful works of art that conserve water and save money.
So here's how it works. If you are interested in painting a rain barrel, please Click here to register. Artwork entries will be accepted until January 20th. The top 50 entries will be selected by the end of January. All artists chosen to paint a rain barrel must attend a mandatory artist workshop at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden on February 7th from 1:00-3:00p. Then its time to have fun! Decorate your rain barrel, then get it to the zoo for display in the Go Green! Garden from April 1 - April 23.
All rain barrels will be auctioned at the Cincinnati Zoo's Party For The Planet on Thursday, April 23.
