Pilot Pumphouse Program

The Pilot Pump House Pilot Program is an outreach to artists locally and regionally and will help to bring recognition to Fountain Hills with a fresh artistic approach annually to our Fountain Park giving visitors a reason to return.

The Public Art Committee is proposing to create an outdoor art gallery exhibit for the pump house wall at Fountain Park. The committee has created a regional call to artists for 2D art to be transposed onto 4’h x 8’w (horizontal) Dibond brushed metal panels. Seven finalists have been chosen.

The theme for this year is “Legends and Lore of the Valley of the Sun.” Each panel will have the artist’s name, title of the piece, a small descriptive paragraph and a sponsor of the panel.

This project would be a pilot program for a one-year period and funded through a program of financial sponsorship raised from local individuals and businesses through the FHCCA Public Art Committee. Sponsorship for each panel is $1000.

We are seeking 5 more additional sponsors.

We hope in future versions of this project, we may have the opportunity to raise funds beyond the cost of the project and be able to direct those funds back into art education for our local youth, one of the areas of our public education that desperately needs support.
