Fish live at the end of this drain.
Inspiration for the Artwork
“Fish Live at The End of This Drain” was created as a vivid reminder to all who pass by of the amazing living creatures who are affected by what goes in the city drains. As with many things in life, out of sight out of mind, often impacts the actions of people. The artist created this piece as a gateway to bring the beautiful creatures living in the waters of Elkhart County back into our sight and mind.
