A Chance to Chat about Fremont’s Public Art

By Cara · March 27th, 2014 · No Comments

The Fremont neighborhood and its many displays of public art have come to be a seamless partnership in the minds of the community and for many visitors. However, this partnership requires more than just creativity, it also calls for funding, planning, and of course, passion.

One particularly passionate person is Barbara Luecke who will be the featured guest for this month’s Fremont Fireside Chat on Saturday, March 29th, at 3PM at the History House. Barbara co-founded the Fremont Arts Council Solstice Parade and helped bring the Troll to Fremont. She worked at 4Culture for some time and is currently the Public Art Program Manager for Sound Transit.

This wonderful opportunity to learn more about Fremont’s public art and what it entails is sponsored by HomeStreet Bank and hosted by Kirby Lindsay of Fremoncentrist.com. The one-hour presentation is FREE and aims to foster friendly, casual discussion.

The Fremont Fireside Chat series will feature a different guest each time to share stories and details about a specific aspect of the ‘Center of the Universe.’ Keep an eye out for the next Fremont Fireside Chat!

As Fremont community members we get to enjoy Fremont’s art year round, let’s take advantage of this unique opportunity and learn how that art came to be.

See you at the History House!
