Lighting a spark of creativity from local artists, Arts Visalia’s “Art on Fire” project brings art to Downtown Visalia. The 25 painted hydrants located along Main Street showcase local artistic talent while also raising Funds for Arts Visalia, our community’s premiere visual art center. Replacing the traditional yellow, the selected hydrants became the canvases for creative designs with unique themes.
The painted designs will remain on the hydrants until 2025 when a new call for designs will be issued and local artists will once again compete for a chance to showcase their artwork as a part of the Art on Fire Project in Downtown Visalia.
As you visit each hydrant, you will notice a plaque acknowledging the artist, the title of the artwork, and the sponsor of that hydrant. Arts Visalia would like to thank many local businesses and community members whose donations made this project possible. We would also like to extend a special Thank You to the Visalia Fire Department and CAL Water for its help and support for Art on Fire.
