Community Partnership for Arts and Culture Artists in Residence Grantee, local artist Linda Zolten Wood, was inspired by St. Clair's 'Year of the..." statue competition/ auctions, and Northeast Shores Development Corporation free rain barrel distribution for 25 Collinwood residents per year.
She and a jury of professional artists, selected from 25 area artists, who were called to create images inspired by lake sustainability, the North Coast and North Collinwood history.
She hopes to create yearly cycles of this competition and rain barrel painting workshops from the proceeds of the event; raising awareness for rainwater collection, lake conservation and the support of local artists.
