A curious project started by a handful of friends in Seattle, Rainworks is a sidewalk street art series that only appears when it rains. Perfect for the rainy city, the project features positive messages that aim to inspire and uplift individuals.

Baring messages such as "you are beautiful," and "the rain is smiling," Rainworks are made using a superhydrophobic coating that is both biodegradable and safe for the environment. Each Rainworks installation lasts between four months and a year, depending on the amount of foot traffic the particular route garners.

Since Rainworks are eco-friendly and temporary, project founder Peregrine Church says that the installations are technically legal in the city of Seattle. Either way, these delightful conversation starters are just another reason to fall in love with the crisp Seattle weather.
