Each year the Festival will purchase up to $4,000 in artwork for a local organization to display in public locations. The choices will be made by the organization at our annual Arts at the Port fine art exhibition.
Over the years Island Hospital, the Anacortes American newspaper, Anacortes Public Library, Anacortes Parks & Recreation, John L. Scott Real Estate, Windermere Real Estate, Gere-A-Deli, the Anacortes School District Cultural Arts Series and the Marine Technology Center have all participated and purchased artwork for their public spaces.
