Designs should be consistent with the theme hope and inspiration or the Village of Flossmoor’s theme, “Welcoming. Beautiful. Connected.” Guidelines and suggested materials are noted on the website. FEE: Barrels will be provided at a cost of $25, which includes the cost of sealing the completed barrels with a clear gloss lacquer after they’re completed for added protection. Fee for approved designs will be collected at barrel pick up.

Art shall not depict things that are violent, offensive, profane or discriminatory; or feature images or text promoting a private business or citizen.
