SBMA’s Friday Forecast: Artistic with a Chance for Rain Barrels

April showers have brought us May…barrels!  Rain barrels, that is, made possible through the Indiana University at South Bend’s Center for a Sustainable Future and hand painted by a dozen different local artists and art groups.  These unique works of green art are not only perfectly practical, economical, and good for the environment, they’re just plain fun to look at.  They’re even better to own.

That’s why we welcome all visitors to our First Friday event, tonight – May 6 – our Rain Barrel Auction at 7 p.m.  Guests are invited to bid on these one-of-a-kind containers and to enter a drawing for a free, unpainted rain barrel.  The evening will also feature a brief lesson on how collecting rain water benefits the budget and beautifies the garden.
