Paint the Plugs

If you’ve seen the painted fireplugs in other Harrisburg neighborhoods and thought Midtown could use some, here’s your chance. FOM is hosting a fireplug painting contest. We’re looking for hydrant sponsors and artists. You or your business or organization may sponsor the project or a specific fireplug on 3rd Street for $100 or more. If you are interested in painting a fireplug, submit your design to the Susquehanna Art Museum (PO Box 11818, Harrisburg PA, 17108) by 8/12. Cash prizes for the three most popular designs.

Artists, these resources will give you more information on crafting your designs:
