DEADLINE to Apply: ALL FIRED UP ON MAIN! Fire Hydrant Artwork Contest

East End Arts in partnership with the Town of Riverhead is pleased to announce ALL FIRED UP ON MAIN!
A Fire Hydrant Painting Project

East End Arts in collaboration with the Town of Riverhead is pleased to invite artists to submit proposals for the design on existing Main Street fire hydrants. There are 10 identified hydrants located on Main Street in Riverhead, NY between Maple Street and Griffing Avenue.

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 designs must be suitable for public viewing. A brochure will be produced identifying artists and location of their work.

There is no cost to submit your hydrant artwork. All paint and supplies will be provided. A $100 stipend will be provided for winning designs, at project completion.
