Silverton Fine Arts Festival

The Silverton Mural Society was the ‘Honored Guest’ at this year’s fine arts festival in the city park on August 21-22. We had a wonderful display of mural items to sell, with an opportunity for children to grab a paintbrush and show off their artistic talents on a colorful historical depiction of a children’s parade during the Silverton Centennial in 1954. And we had great participation! We thank muralists Tonya Smithburg, Kali Dirks, and Tami Biamont for their willingness to help direct the kids in their efforts. While the painting was going on, there was a bid sheet out so folks could actually bid on the finished product. We’re happy to report that the winning bidder paid $200.00 for this beautiful painting.
