Art on a LimbThe City of Suwanee wants to hear from artists who are willing to go out on a limb – literally. 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 2013 Art on a Limb program is February 15. More information and an application are available at www.suwanee.com.

Area residents have come to look forward to Art on a Limb as part of spring in Suwanee. Last year, Michawne Clark found a clay mug created by Sandra Nissan: “I cannot tell you how excited I was to see it hanging from the fence separating the Greenway from McGinnis Reserve – . Once I realized what it was, I screamed like I had won the Publisher”s Clearing House Sweepstakes – .”#
