Five new murals now complete!
The first week of September, 2021, the City of Springfield’s Stormwater Team added five more murals to our UpStream Art collection, for a total of 31 unique and colorful sidewalk murals.
Held every summer since 2016, the UpStream Art project increases awareness of the connection between City streets and local waterways. This year’s five designs were chosen for their ability to inspire all of us to do our part in preventing pollutants from entering neighborhood storm drains. The theme was, “Keep it Clean, Drains to Stream.”
A huge thank you to the staff, judges, and artists who made this year’s project so much fun! We are especially grateful to staff at Agnes Stewart Middle School and the City of Springfield’s departments of Operations, Traffic, Finance, GIS, and Police.
