If you missed one of the two bass fishing tournaments this month or the Sturgeon Bay Fine Art Fair over the weekend, put your hands together because you are in luck. Destination Sturgeon Bay launched its street art project for 2023 with a new palette for artists from across the Midwest to paint. After three years of cherries and previous strings that included sturgeon, chairs, and benches, artists this year painted 27 bass statues to be displayed around the city. Destination Sturgeon Bay Executive Director Cameryn Ehlers-Kwaterski says the change of pace is nice for everyone involved.
All 27 bass will be auctioned off this fall as a part of the 23rd Annual Street Art Auction on Saturday, September 16th. You can see the bass in and around the city, including nearby 3rd Avenue where the Sturgeon Bay Farm Market will kick off their season on Saturday.
