4th Annual
Painted Rain Barrel
Silent Auction Fundraiser

May 2 - May 16

Delafield Public Library

 In an effort to raise awareness of water as a limited natural resource and to connect our local schools, arts and sustainability communities, the Waukesha County Green Team in partnership with the Delafield Public Library and SummerStage of Delafield has challenged area students and artists to create rain barrels as beautiful as they are functional.

These special works of art will be displayed on the Delafield Public Library grounds for a silent auction fundraiser. Viewing and bidding will be open to the public during the library’s normal business hours from Saturday, May 2 through Saturday, May 16. In addition to the auction, Project Rainway will offer presentations about rain barrel benefits and installation.


A single rain barrel will save most homeowners about 1300 gallons of water during the peak summer months. Saving water not only saves money and energy, but it helps our environment. Collecting water from downspouts keeps it from becoming runoff into our rivers and streams. It also means less water needs to be pumped out of our shrinking aquifers.

Final Bidding: May 16, 3:00 pm




Help support the Waukesha County Green Team, SummerStage, and The Delafield Public Library by bidding on a
 one-of-a-kind rain barrel, and begin collecting water for your yard. Proceeds from the rain barrel art auction will benefit the Delafield Public Library, SummerStage of Delafield, and the Waukesha County Green Team.




In an effort to raise awareness of water as a limited natural resource and to connect our local schools, arts, and
sustainability communities, the Delafield Public Library, SummerStage of Delafield, and the Waukesha County Green
Team is challenging area artists and students to create 50 masterpieces from 55-gallon plastic rain barrels.

Final creations will be displayed on the Library grounds during the weeks of May 2-16 in conjunction with a silent auction fundraiser.
