The Geneva City Council recently recognized talented artists who showcased their creativity in the City's 2019 "Art on Fire" hydrant design competition.
Tatiana Hamilton and Natalia Bork won first place for their "Please Don't Eat The Daisies" hydrant located on Lincoln Avenue (pictured). Melissa Price's "Light It Up Blue" hydrant at First and Peyton streets, and Faith Petersen's "GHS Marching Vikings" at Logan Avenue and Center Street 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 100 hydrants have been painted the past seven 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. 7 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 contest.
