"Fish out of Water, Hooked on the Arts"
Februar 5, 2008
Anderson’s „Fish out of Water, Hooked on the Arts“ has little to do with fishing, hot spots on the lake, or fisherman’s stories! But everything with large fishes out of the water and local art.
Discover 32 artistic largemouth bass sculptures making a splash all over Anderson. The Anderson County Arts Center organizers decided to promote a public art project to raise awareness and funds for the Warehouse Capital Campaign.
In February 2004 a call for artists went out , and over 100 designs were submitted. A committee chose from conceptual ideas, and the artists were commissioned to sculpt, paper maché, fabricate, creatively transform, paint, and tile six-foot fiberglass fish and a 27-inch „trophy fish“.
The artists not only met the challenge; they exceeded the Art Centers wildest expectations. The fish are covered in auto paint, oil based paint, or no paint at all. One fish „Hooked on Trash Bass“ is covered in actual trash picked up from Lake Hartwell.
Take a walk and enjoy „Fish out of Water“ and get „Hooked on the Arts‘ in Anderson, SC.
