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, which is returning in 2021 after a one-year hiatus due to COVID-19. If you would like to participate, submit an application to the City. "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.
