Giving back through public art

In addition to our regular grant cycle, the Festival also designates proceeds from our annual Art Dash and Color Runs for the purchase of public art.  With this year’s funds we have decided to purchase two pieces from the Madrona Grove Sculpture Exhibit at the Depot – Giraffes by Joe Treat and Continental Drift Number 2 (left) by Anacortes artist Steve Lloyd.  Giraffes consists of two pieces, and was selected the public favorite in a recent survey. It will remain where it is currently placed.  Continental Drift Number 2, will be relocated – site to be determined.  Both pieces will become the property of the City.  The Madrona Grove Sculpture Exhibit is sponsored by Windermere and facilitated by the Anacortes Arts Commission.
