You soon may receive directions to someone's house that includes the line, "My house is the one with the horses out front." Or the collage of umbrellas, or the Campbell's soup can, or any one of many other rain barrel subjects.
For the fourth year, local artists and students donated their time and talent to turn rain barrels into functional yard art for Bluegrass PRIDE's Roll Out the Rain Barrels event.
The works of art will be on display at various central Kentucky sites through the end of May. Then, on June 1 they will all be brought together at the Bodley-Bullock House in downtown Lexington for a Rain Barrel Reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
The free event, sponsored by Whitaker Bank, will give folks the opportunity to mingle with many of the artists over appetizers and drinks.
