As local property management experts and sustainability enthusiasts, we are excited to share a fascinating opportunity for a public art installation at a local rain garden feature in Boulder, Colorado.
The site of the art installation is an existing stormwater control measure in the asphalt parking lot of Valmont Park in Boulder. To most visitors, the stormwater feature probably appears to be no more than a vegetated depression in the ground, but these type of green infrastructure projects are incredibly beneficial to the local ecology and water quality systems.
Specially designed drainage medium and natural filtration plantings help mitigate common pollutants that flow over street surfaces like trash, oil, and other urban chemicals. Not only do these stormwater measures filter polluted water before reaching our local waterways, but they also create natural habitats for urban wildlife and beneficial insects.
The purpose of this project is utilize a public art installation to better communicate these ecological benefits to visitors through engaging art.
Alongside 4 other community members, Chris Marion of 3.0 Management will participate as part of the review and selection committee for the project.
Chris shared, "For much of my career, I've been focused on innovative, sustainability solutions for the built environment. Green infrastructure is one of the most important aspects of a well-designed property, but I've always approached it from a technical standpoint. By participating in this project, I am excited to see green infrastructure through a new, artistically engaging perspective."
The Request for Qualifications is underway and closes September 19th, 2022.
