Paint Out Pollution Project

Paint Out Pollution

Did you know that stormwater, or rainwater that runs off hard surfaces such as rooftops, streets and parking lots, represents the fastest growing source of pollution in the James River?

Paint Out Pollution is a project to increase awareness of stormwater pollution and celebrate the native flora and fauna that call the James River home. Richmond artists created stencils to be used to install art on storm drains. Students and volunteers will use the stencils to install art on storm drains throughout the Richmond region.

Paint Out Pollution is partnership between the James River Association and Art on Wheels. To get involved contact the James River Association’s Community Conservation Manager, Justin Doyle, at

Artists who contributed to Paint Out Pollution include:
