Art On Fire
Conceived as a partnership with the County of Albemarle and the Albemarle County Service Authority, this project creatively reimagines Albemarle community fire hydrants as canvas for mini murals. The 2019 pilot of Art On Fire put the decision in the hands of community members to choose the designs for 5 new hydrant murals. Chosen artists included Kaki Dimock, Lou Haney, and Natalie Kohler. The 2021 season includes additional hydrant murals by Richard Montoya, Lou Haney and Rayne MacPhee. Communities and neighborhood associations interested in commissioning a hydrant mural may contact the CMP to learn more.
