The Fountain Hills Art Walks

fh art

Taking advantage of one of the largest collections of art on public display, the Town is hosting docent-led art walks each month from October through April.  The volunteer docents will be providing information on the walks about each piece they visit, the techniques used to create the piece and a background on each artist that created the piece. The art walks are a cooperative effort between the Town of Fountain Hills and the Public Art Committee of the Fountain Hills Cultural and Civic Association.

New this year is revamped tours and several new pieces.  The first tour, called the Civic Center Tour, begins at 9 a.m. This tour will feature pieces in the courtyard area and inside both the Community Center and the Library. The second tour, called the Fountain Park Tour, begins at 11 a.m.  This tour features pieces inside Town Hall, down the Avenue of the Fountains, and the collection at Fountain Park. Both tours meet at the Community Center.

Tours are offered at no charge, but participants can donate $5 and receive a commemorative Art Walk mug.  Pre-registration is required as the number that can be taken on the art walks is limited.  Registrations are accepted at Town Hall, Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., or at the Community Center, Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
