Art on Fire - Fire Hydrant Art


Artists take to the streets putting their creative mark on Geneva fire hydrants as part of the City's "Art on Fire" program. "Art on Fire" was initiated by the City with the assistance from its Cultural Arts Commission to have individuals "adopt" and paint fire hydrants to display creative artwork. You can take a virtual tour of all our decorated hydrants on our interactive map.
