Storm Drain Header 2018-01.png

The streets and sidewalks of Lynchburg are connected to the James River by a network of over 15,000 stormwater drains. Whenever it rains, all the water—and whatever else is in the drain, including trash, oil, gasoline, and natural debris—is carried directly to the James River.

In order to raise awareness about the importance of stormwater drains in keeping the James River clean, Lynchburg Water Resources and the James River Council for the Arts and Humanities (JRCAH) are inviting artists to submit designs for storm drain art in downtown Lynchburg.

WinterLights on the Bluffwalk

WinterLights is a project to create vibrant, temporary public art that illuminates the Bluffwalk, attracting visitors to visit downtown in the evenings of February 2017. We're seeking design proposals from area artists, youth groups, agencies, businesses and individuals.  

The next WinterLights is postponed to February 2019.  Look for an announcement in the fall of 2018 about next winter's schedule and features.

Thanks very much for your interest and support for our 2016 and 2017 events, and thank you in advance for your interest in 2019!
