Back in April, Eh? asked Superior residents of artistic talent to submit concepts for storm-drain art.

The results are in.

Six artists were chosen for the Superior Storm Drain Art project, each of whom either lives or works in the city, and their work is already cropping up.

When they’re all finished, an art exhibit will be up at the Superior Council for the Arts North End Arts Gallery in the Red Mug building, beginning June 13.

A reception will be held for the artists from 2-4 p.m. June 14 at the gallery.

The project was funded by the Community Opportunity Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation. The paint was donated.

The project was designed to make people think twice about what they put in the storm drains that often run right into Lake Superior.
