The Bellaire Culture & Arts Board is seeking artists to participate in an exciting new public art campaign. Interested artists will be permitted to “adopt” fire hydrants within Bellaire and create artistic designs for them. The goal of this program is to embrace the artistic talents of local individuals while displaying creative artwork throughout the community. There is no specific theme for this program, though artists are encouraged to incorporate the character and history of the surrounding environment and neighborhood into their artwork.
The program is free and open to the public. Art supplies and paint will not be supplied. Paint specifications will be provided. Applications will be reviewed as they are received until designs have been selected for all available hydrants. Applicants are welcome to submit more than one hydrant design for consideration.
