Howell students decorate downtown sidewalks with rain art

The next time you are out and about in downtown Howell in the rain, pay attention to the sidewalks.

You may see a frog pop out, or hands coming of a sewer drain, the Livingston Daily Press & Argus ( ) reported.

Rain art is what you will see.

The Howell High School advance digital graphics class partnered with the Main Street Downtown Development Authority Design Committee to bring rain art to the downtown district to “delight and surprise residents and visitors to get rid of those rainy-day blues,” said Cathleen Edgerly, Howell Main Street DDA director.

Rain art is a type of art application that includes messages or images that turn rainy days into something to look forward to.

Think of it as a glow-in-the-dark tattoo. You can only see the image in the dark. In this case, the images come to life when water is applied on it, said John Mozdzierz, Howell High School art teacher.
