Arts Council announces 2018 hydrant theme

Posted: Friday, July 20, 2018

The LaFontaine Arts Council announces that the theme of this year’s fire hydrant painting project will be “Comic Characters.” Artists will choose well-known animated characters from comic books, television or movies. All of the hydrants to be painted are in and around the downtown Huntington area.

This purpose of this public art project is to enrich, to entertain and to educate. In addition, it will promote arts and culture, provide a showcase for local and area artists and increase pedestrian traffic in the downtown area. Opening day of the project is scheduled for September 9.

Artists interested in participating in the hydrant painting should contact LaFontaine Arts Council director Debbie Dyer at or (260) 358- 0055.
