Paint the Streets in Your Small Town

Arts R Alive, a local group in the small town of Webster City, Iowa, bring sculptures to West Twin Park. They together in 2015 and thought it might be fun to paint the streets as a way to do a little fund raising.  18 x 18 squares were laid out, businesses and organizations were invited to buy a square and come down and paint.  The funds raised went for the long term care of West Twin Park where the Sculpture Contest is held. The painted street borders the park.

The Mayor had leftover paint from clean up day that first year.  A truckload of leftover paint would’ve cost thousands of dollars to take to the landfill.  What a great way to use the old paint! He brought some of it down for the painters to use, at no charge.

Check out the short video the Chamber of Commerce created off some of the work and imagine what your town could put together if you decided to paint the streets!
