Roll Out the Barrels 2019
On May 23, families and friends gathered at The Foundry to bid on one-of-a-kind, functional pieces of art at Roll Out the Barrels, an annual event that raises awareness of stormwater runoff and water conservation, all while promoting local artists and supporting environmental education. Thanks to the generous support of local artists and event attendees, over $1,700 was raised to promote environmental education in Athens-Clarke County through the Green Schools Program!
The event is organized annually by the Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Management Program and Water Conservation Office, but there are many other people involved that help make this event a success year after year. Thanks to Athens Paint and Body for sealing the completed barrels with a shiny clear coat, Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful for taking barrel payments, The Foundry for providing their space and delicious appetizers, and local band CRUSH for providing the evening’s entertainment.
And of course, thanks to all of the amazing artists who donated their time and creativity: Courtney Brown, Jamie Calkin, Sarah Cook, Cameron Bliss Ferrelle, Nat Freeman, Lou Kregel, Deborah Manoll, Micah Miranda, Maria Mueller, Marisa Leilani Mustard, the Raessler Family, Lorenza Chico Rozier, Julia Wynn Safer, Maggie Seee, Bembry Smith, and Joan Terrell.
