Rain Candy

Our Sculpture Corridor is radiant with the color and beauty of the Michiana Rain Barrels.

There are already a fair number of reasons to hope for rain in the forecast: You’ve planted a new garden that needs a jumpstart; there’s a Nora Ephron movie marathon on tv; or, you’re the coach of a 5-and-under tee ball team that has a scheduled practice.  But now there are fifteen even better and more beautiful reasons to pray for precipitation…the arrival and auction of this year’s Michiana Rain Barrels.

As partners with the Indiana University-South Bend Center for a Sustainable Future, SBMA is proud to display the rain barrels painted by local artists and artist groups.  They can be seen in our sculpture corridor from now until May 4, when they’ll be auctioned to those smart and savvy citizens who know that these rain barrels are garden-, budget- and earth-friendly ways to support art right here in our own backyard.
