The Geneva City Council recently recognized talented artists who showcased their creativity in the City's "Art on Fire" hydrant design competition this year.
Vinny Siracusano won first place for his "Construction Worker" hydrant located at 1772 S. Randall Road (pictured). Anne Cate Douglass' "I Need A Hero" hydrant at James Street and River Lane, and Kathryn Newcome and Liz Whittaker's "Uncaged" at Route 31 and Fulton Street earned second and third place honors respectively.
The City of Geneva, in collaboration with the Cultural Arts Commission, has sought artists to adopt and paint fire hydrants throughout the community. More than 90 hydrants have been painted the past six years as part of "Art on Fire," and the program has been well received by residents and visitors who have taken notice of the artwork in the downtown and surrounding areas.
You can watch the "Art on Fire" recognition ceremony during the Nov. 5 City Council meeting or take a virtual tour of all our painted hydrants.
Thank you to all the artists who participated in this year's contest.
