Helping Save Water with “Rain on Main”

We all know water conversation is important to preserving our planet. We also love beautiful art.

Carmel has combined these into “Rain on Main”, an annual competition where local artists paint 65-gallon rain barrels. These barrels are then sold in a silent auction at the Carmel Farmer’s Market to raise money for increasing water conservation awareness. This year’s auction takes place this Saturday, August 17th.

In 2017 Connie and I purchased Barrel #13 – “ChinoiseRain”. We use it to collect rain water for our flowers and plants.

Starting last year Moody Eyes has been a barrel sponsor. This year’s barrel is “Must Be the Honey” by Michael Hockman. It’s located on the Southeast corner of Main Street and Rangeline Road.
