Pump House Pilot Program -
The Public Art Committee formulated a national call to artists to create a new and exciting outdoor art gallery exhibit for the mural wall at Fountain Park. This projects theme is “Legends and Lore of the Valley of the Sun” and will be on display for one year. The 7 finaist’s art will be transposed onto 4’h x 8’w (horizontal) Dibond brushed metal panels which will be secured by a locked bracket system. There are no sharp edges and the metal will weather well and will not fade in our climate.
Each panel will have the artist’s name, title of the piece, a small descriptive paragraph and a sponsor of the panel.
We are asking you to be a sponsor for one of our finalists. The cost to sponsor an art pannel is $1,000. With that
sponsorship you will have your name and contact information on a sign accompanying your art pannel on the mural wall for one year. If you would like to be a sponsor, please call Dori Wittrig at 602-558-5901 or Jenny Willigrod at 602-318-9618.
The Public Art Committee is excited to promote this new visual experience for the Town of Fountain Hills and its many visitors. The benefits of this project will allow for professional art to be on display, changing every year offering a fresh, new perspective and theme. We hope you will help us with the Pump House Project and be a part of this exciting and new outdoor art interaction.
