Metal Fish Public Art Project
Welcoming Walleyes, Trout n' About, Perch Party and for 2021, the Nautical Northerns and the Last Blast Bass!
The Marinette Menominee Area Chamber Foundation for the last 3 years has offered metal fish sculptures to area businesses to be painted/decorated and displayed for public viewing. This fun public art program is intended to serve as a tourism draw, showcase our local world-class fishing, drive traffic to local businesses and create an attachment to our communities. This art event has been made possible through generous donations from Wildlife Décor and Rusty Wolfe Studios in addition to the efforts of the Marinette Downtown Action Group, an initiative of the Marinette Menominee Area Chamber of Commerce. In support of the effort, the EagleHerald newspaper has hosted a "Vote for Your Favorite" contest each year and proceeds from the contest are donated to the Chamber Foundation for future beautification projects.
