What is a Rainwork?
Rainworks are rain-activated street art that are completely invisible when dry, and only appear when they are wet. Rainworks are designed to make rainy days happier. They are created by using a non-toxic, environmentally-safe super hydrophobic spray called Rainworks Invisible Spray. Rainworks typically last 2 to 4 months.
Artists Peregrine Church and Xack Fischer created Rainworks in their hometown of Seattle, Washington and they've helped people create Rainworks projects all over the world! At the beginning of the school year, the Rainworks crew came to Bloomington to create the largest Rainworks in the world at the Eskenazi Museum of Art. They also hosted a workshop teaching others how to create these interactive pieces of public art. Our talented graphic designer Danielle attended the workshop and installed several Rainworks around town to spread some Btown love. To see a full map of Rainworks click here.
If you spot a Rainworks piece make sure you share it with others!
