The sidewalk outside the Black Earth Municipal Office is a bit more colorful, thanks to Black Earth elementary students and Dane County. Black Earth received a grant and partnered with Madison Area Municipal Stormwater Partnership, Dane Arts Mural Arts and Dane County Land & Water Resources to bring a sidewalk mural to the village. The Village worked with Black Earth elementary children to bring awareness to the importance of storm water drainage to area creeks, rivers and watersheds. Land & Water Resources came in to the school and did an educational session with the children and then had them do up some drawings of what storm water meant. With the drawings from the children, Dane Arts Mural Arts organization put together their work for a couple of designs. The children then voted on which to be painted. Dane Arts Mural then painted it on Monday. The mural is located on the corner of Park and Mills St.
