Eye on You

Mindy Leitner of Fond du Lac

74 S. Main - pocket park

"I have always loved owls. Growing up in Fond du Lac, my parents taught me the sounds of owls. We often went out walking in our neighborhood at night following an owl's call, hoping to catch a glimpse of one high in a treetop. It was usually a Great Horned Owl, and often there were a pair calling back and forth. To this day, I will go outside looking for owls when I hear them at night."

Guitar Medly

Angela Boeder

258 S. Main street

This painting was created to represent the artist's love for music. As an art form, an outlet, a lifeline. The world would be a bleak and colorless place without the gift of music. The artist used bright/bold colors and strokes to represent the boldness and brilliancy of this art form as a whole. 


Utility Box Art Project

The Utility Box Art Project is taking ordinary objects of urban infrastructure and transforming them into canvases for local artwork. These vibrant pieces incorporate art into the downtown landscape, create visual interest, and support local artists as the Fond du Lac arts scene continues to grow. In the first two years of the program 18 installations have been completed. After receiving positive response and interest from the community, the program will be expanded beyond the downtown district and into neighborhoods within the City of Fond du Lac.

Worldly View

Barbara Ball of Fond du Lac

"I paint because it's fun and messy! I love painting acrylic pours because everyone sees something different in them. It's almost a spiritual feeling that comes into my soul when I create a painting. I get excited about all the possibilities waiting for me on the blank canvas. It's like starting fresh everyday! It makes me happy to see others happy and enjoying my work."

"I moved to Wisconsin from the East Coast and have discovered a whole new world of gorgeous, sprawling farms and awesomely quirky animals. I love to paint farm animals (mostly cows). I love their personalities and their variations in colors. Art can evoke so many emotions, but my favorite to try and capture is joy and humor. Humor in art is accessible to a wide range of people and age groups. It levels playing fields and hopefully brings in new people to experience art."
