The South Renton Neighborhood Association, in collaboration with the Renton Municipal Arts Commission, is adding some flair to its neighborhood in unsuspecting spots. Community artists have been "adopting" fire hydrants within the South Renton neighborhood and transforming these everyday objects into incredibly unique works of art.
Each hydrant features a one of a kind design created and implemented by local artists whose proposed designs were reviewed and accepted by a Selection Committee made up on South Renton neighbors.
The goal of this program is to embrace the artistic talents of local individuals while displaying creative artwork throughout the community. There is no specific theme for the program, though artists are encouraged to incorporate the character and history of the surrounding environment and neighborhood into their artwork.
The Selection Committee is still reviewing proposals, so get your application in today! Visit rentondowntown.com/hydrants for more information.
