Welcome to Downtown!

Hydrant Art in South Renton


Take a walking tour!  The full tour and walking instructions for the South Renton Hydrant project can now be downloaded directly to your phone.

The South Renton Neighborhood Association*, in collaboration with the Renton Municipal Arts Commission, is seeking artists to participate in an exciting new public art campaign! Interested artists will be permitted to “adopt” fire hydrants within the South Renton neighborhood and create artistic designs for them. Applications are open to all who are interested.

The goal of this program is to embrace the artistic talents of local individuals while displaying creative artwork throughout the community.

There is no specific theme for this program, though artists are encouraged to incorporate the character and history of the surrounding environment and neighborhood into their artwork.

The program is free and open to the public. Due to the popularity of the program, the original limit to 20 hydrants has been removed and the program will continue until the neighborhood runs out of hydrants…or artists!

Selected artists will receive $400 per hydrant to cover the cost of materials, supplies and design fees.

Applicants are welcome to submit multiple designs for consideration.

Submit your proposal today! For more information check out the full application here.
