The Geneva City Council recently recognized the talented artists who showcased their creativity in the City’s “Art on Fire” hydrant design competition this year.
Natalia Bork and Tatiana Hamilton won first place for their “Doodle” hydrant located on Lincoln Avenue and Union Street. Andrew & Gigi Kimball's “Cubby Bear" hydrant at 558 Westfield Course, and Anne Cate Douglass' "A Day on the Fox" at State Street and River Lane 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 80 hydrants have been painted the past five 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 Oct. 2 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 program.
