New map helps discover art in Washougal
A surprising variety of beautiful works of art exist in and around the City of Washougal. The Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance (WACA) has created the “Discover Washougal Art Map” brochure to help locals and visitors find these treasures.
“We are very proud of all the wonderful works of art in Washougal and we want everyone to know about and enjoy them,” said Janice Ferguson, WACA President.
The brochure features a map of downtown with each piece of artwork represented by a number. The corresponding name and location of each is listed on the back. A few of the artworks included are a bronze bust of Captain William Clark at Washougal City Hall, a wooden fish sculpture at the entrance to Hathaway Park, and the compass viewpoint at Washougal Waterfront Park. The newest public art, dedicated this fall, is the Golden Back Heron at Washougal City Hall purchased by WACA with funds from the Washougal Art Festival in August.
“The map currently features 25 pieces of art, and we plan to create regular updates to the map as WACA and the community help to bring more public art to Washougal,” said Ferguson.
The Discover Washougal Art Map can be found at Washougal City Hall, Washougal Library, Washougal Information Center at Two Rivers Heritage Museum, Port of Camas/Washougal, Camas-Washougal Chamber office, and The Post Record.
