[ARCHIVED] 2014 ‘Art On Fire’ Hydrant Design Winners Announced

Three Geneva residents were honored in August by the City Council for their artistic contributions to our second “Art on Fire” hydrant design contest.

Felicia Kraft won first place for her “Outfoxed” design located at Second and James streets. Ellie Wood’s “Geneva’s Finest Firefighter T I double G-er” (State and Second streets) and the team of Marie Kostecka and Sally Gaigalas’ “River Rock N Roll” (State and Fourth streets) hydrants earned second and third place respectively.

Mayor Kevin Burns initiated the “Art on Fire” program to have individuals “adopt” and paint fire hydrants to display creative artwork throughout Geneva. All 53 hydrants painted in 2013 and 2014 were judged by the City’s Public Arts Advisory Committee and Cultural Arts Commission.

People can take a virtual tour of all the decorated hydrants on an interactive map posted on the City’s website (see link below).

“Art on Fire” did not mandate a specific theme, but the program encouraged artists to incorporate the character of the hydrant’s surrounding environment into their design. City staff reviewed and approved all application designs to make sure they did not compromise the visibility of the fire hydrants.

The City wants to thank the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission and Public Arts Advisory Committee for their assistance with the program.
