Benches by the Bay: New 2016 Sturgeon Bay Street Art
Since its inception, the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center’s annual Street Art Project has gone through various stages of transformation to capture the interest of the community as well as visitors and potential artists. Subject matter has included lighthouses, sails, and sturgeons.
With the 16th season of Street Art just months away, the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center’s Board of Directors and staff is pleased to announce the 2016 Street Art Project will feature an all new, functional subject matter — benches!
Artists will have the choice to embellish, adorn, and enhance a cedar bench provided by the SBVC or create one of their own. As always, the finished creation must be weather-resistant in order to stand-up to the elements while on display from mid-May leading up to the live auction following Harvest Festival on Saturday, September 17, 2016.
Informational artist packets are now available with a proposal deadline of January 25, 2016. To receive an informative 2016 Street Art Packet, call the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center at 920.743.6246.
