Brief Description

A functional, interactive, and creative artwork installation that engages and educates residents about Green Stormwater Infrastructure at Walnut Creek Wetland Park.
Up to three semi-finalists will be selected for interviews. The City of Raleigh is installing two Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) projects, including a gravel wetland and a linear bioretention, along Peterson St at Walnut Creek Wetland Park. The wetland will include an underground gravel reservoir that'll hold and filter stormwater runoff. Plant roots in the wetland will soak up and clean the water. The gravel wetland also will slow down the flow of stormwater before it reaches Walnut Creek.
The City seeks an artist to create educational artwork about the GSI that invites community interaction. The education can take place through artistic signs, poetry, visual depictions of stormwater conveyance and treatment and/or native wetland plant species and wildlife or other means.
