Capture rain water to water your flowers and vegetables, to keep storm water from going into the river and to beautify your yard!
Barrels were painted by twelve area artists and artist groups. These barrels will be displayed at each respective underwriters location from April 1st through April 22nd. These barrels all go on display at the South Bend Museum of Art from April 22nd through May 6th. You will enjoy previewing these barrels prior to the auction. Auction benefits IUSB Center for a Sustainable Future, South Bend Museum of Art and the Artists/Artist Groups.
