“It All Flows Into the Savannah” Storm Drain Mural Competition Winners Announced
Augusta, GA — The Greater Augusta Arts Council is proud to announce the selection of winners for the 2021 “It All Flows Into the Savannah” storm drain mural design competition. This project is part of the City’s education and outreach efforts to raise awareness about storm water pollution.
Painting is scheduled to begin April 5, 2021 and will last through the week of the Masters Tournament festivities. An accelerated timeline for the project was made possible by the immense support The Arts Council received from all areas of the community.
There was a wonderful response from local artists when the call for art was published and an impressive number of public votes in the public voting poll. The public arts advisory panel made swift decisions when finalizing the design winners. Sherwin-Williams Paint receives a special thanks for sponsorship of the paint, including delivery of pre-portioned paint supplies for each artist. And our City staff partners in Parks & Recreation and Engineering supplied efficient and thorough logistical support. Because of these contributions, the Storm Drain Mural project was able to stay on time and on track in an impressive turn-around time.

“To Savannah,” by Lexi White (Augusta Common NE)
“Up the River,” by Cyndy Epps (Augusta Common SW)
