Suwanee Goes Out on a Limb for Art

The City of Suwanee is accepting proposals and samples from artists who wish to have their work considered for the City's month-long, award-winning Art on a Limb program.

Through Art on a Limb, two pieces of original artwork are hidden along the Suwanee Creek Greenway or at one of the City's parks each day throughout the month of May. Those who find the art pieces get to keep the unique trail treasures. Past Art on a Limb pieces have included clay orbs, small paintings on canvas as well as pieces of the City's old water tower, magnets, gourds painted to look like birds, the Suwanee S shaped from metal, and pottery pieces that include leaves found along the Greenway.

The deadline for submitting entries to be considered for the 2016 Art on a Limb program is February 29. More information and an application are available here.

Area residents have come to look forward to Art on a Limb as part of spring in Suwanee.

"My husband and I were walking our dogs one morning at Sims Lake and came upon a piece of art that was designed by Tina Walke. A heart ornament that simply states, "Suwanee <3 Smile More," said resident Alison Lakebrink. "We have lived in the area since 1998 and have watched the city of Suwanee grow into something so wonderful for the community and the arts."
