YOU HELPED US BUILD A MOSAIC BENCH.  As a welcoming gesture and a community involvement and beautification project, Frederic Arts with the help of nearly 100 participants built a mosaic bench to be located the in front of the new clinic.  The design as envisioned by local mosaic artist, Cynthia Rintala DeMar is represented above.  We used raw material gathered and ask you to help us put it together during the Family Days weekend.  The concrete slab was ready and by the end of Saturday YOU did it!

The results are amazing and THANKS to everyone who helped! 



Frederic's Public Arts Commission hopes to add something each year in various public locations throughout Frederic. “It’s a way for village residents and businesses to invest in themselves,” said Jack Route, also a Commission member and on the Board of Frederic Arts.  “By adding something each year we hope to increase the awareness of the Arts and in some small way add to the distinctive quality of life we have here in Frederic.” 

We are accepting donations in any amount, towards another Public Art purchase for the village.  This can be in addition to a membership or separately.  Please note on your check your preference.  If you have an interest in serving on this commission, please contact Jack Route at 715-371-0144 or  Donations are accepted anytime by stopping into the Frederic Public Library or sending a check to “Frederic Arts, Public Art” at PO Box 334, Frederic, WI54837.  The commission operates independently but receives some funding and administrative help from Frederic Arts.
