The City of Marco Island is pleased to invite the public to an Open House at City Hall on January 14, 2021, from 5 PM – 7 PM to view local artwork on display in City Hall. In August 2020, the City launched a new initiative called Art at City Hall, celebrating local artists by displaying their work inside City Hall and highlighting Marco Island’s unique natural environment. Every three to four months, a new theme will be highlighted and a call to artists will be sent soliciting artwork that aligns with that theme. The first theme was “Roseate Spoonbills” which has been on display since September. Before the City transitions to the next theme, the public is invited to see the Spoonbills and meet local artists who have contributed their work. Future themes will include “Storm and Sun,” “The Everglades,” “Wading Birds and Owls,” “Venues of Marco Island,” “Flora and Fauna” and more. The goal of this initiative is to showcase our local artists while emphasizing Marco Island’s natural environment, endangered species, and unique beauty.
The artists who contributed to the Roseate Spoonbill exhibit included Betty Newman, Carolyn Burger, Jim Robellard, Judy Chinski, Nancy Norman, Nancy Garrison, Diana Calleja, Tyler MacDonald, Joseph Parisi, Larry Richardson, Rachel Pierce, and Scott Shook, Debra Reed, and Diane Reed Eiler.
