We are working on the dates for ArtFish on the Light Post 2016.
We will post them as soon.
Until Then Please Enjoy the 2013 Art Fish on Light Posts in Dunsmuir.
During the summer and fall of 2013, the Siskiyou Arts Museum displayed throughout Dunsmuir the Art Fish created by a wide variety of local artists and art lovers. The Art Fish were auctioned as a fundraiser, with proceeds shared by their creators and SAM.
Enjoy a cyber tour through the 2013 Art Fish, and make a note to participate next summer when new Art Fish “swim” again on Dunsmuir’s lightposts!

Headline from the front page of the Dunsmuir News, April 10, 2013.
After cutting out the eye, gill plate and pectoral fin, I was thinking 2 sided, antique one site and burnt woor grain the other. I tried to paint with the wood grain to give a water reflective effect. (not for auction)
“My art fish reflects the vibe I enjoy in Dunsmuir,” says Laura. “I want the viewer to experience a sense of joy and play when looking at my fish.” This two-sided design includes a rainbow of swirly circles and dots on side and rainbow sparkles and a butterfly on the other. labellemariposa.com
This fish is subtitled, “One National Under God.”
