Three Geneva residents were honored Dec. 2 by the City Council for their artistic contributions to the city's inaugural "Art on Fire" hydrant design program.
Cecilia Holinger won first place for her "Courthouse Owls" (pictured with this article) design located at Third and Fulton streets. Meghan McKenna's "Color Storm" (State and Third streets) and Lorraine Ochsner's "Santa" (Fifth and Campbell streets) hydrants earned second and third place respectively.
Mayor Kevin Burns thanked all artists who participated in the program, which he initiated to have individuals "adopt" and paint fire hydrants this fall to display creative artwork throughout Geneva. All 41 painted hydrants were judged by the city's Public Arts Advisory Committee and Cultural Arts Commission.
