THE ARTS COMMISSION INITIATED A NEW VENUE FOR PUBLIC ART IN GIG HARBOR

The inaugural exhibit of the OutDoor Gallery Program invited Artists to submit proposals for bronze sculptures or other durable outdoor art for display within City limits for a period of two years beginning in June of 2012.  The sculpture exhibit is intended to integrate art into the daily lives of local residents and visitors by presenting works from locally and regionally acclaimed artists.  Go to 2012-14 OUTDOOR GALLERY to see this year's work (and details on how to contact the artist directly for sales information).

The location of 2 pedestals along Harborview Drive between Soundview and Pioneer are pictured below.
