Trout Art Trail

Blue Ridge GA

Various Locations
Announcing an exciting public art project celebrating the beauty of the trout fish presented in Blue Ridge, Georgia. Blue Ridge has officially been designated with twohonors… the ‘Trout Capital of Georgia’ and one of the top Art Towns in the Nation. In highlighting what Blue Ridge does best, the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association and the Blue Ridge Mountain Chapter of Trout Unlimited have partnered to host a county-wide public art event. We call this incredible project Trout Art Trail. The Trout Art Trail Project will offer a limited edition series of five-foot fiberglass trout sculptures presented as a county-wide event. We are inviting businesses, organizations, and individuals to join us as participants of the first ever North Georgia Trout Art Trail with the opportunity to sponsor their very own Trout Sculpture. Sponsored Trout Sculptures will be decorated, each as a unique piece of art. Together we can provide much needed exciting and interactive public art around this unique Art Town/Trout Capital of Georgia through the Trout Art Trail. We will be encouraging and assisting sponsors to partner with participating local artists in the decoration of their Trout Sculpture. Design ideas will be submitted and reviewed by a panel to ensure high caliber designs are presented to our sponsors. From April through June 2017, the Trout Sculptures will be on display for the official Trout Art Trail. These one of a kind Trout Sculptures will be on display during one of the peak seasons in Blue Ridge for visitors. During the months of April through June, the Trout Art Trail will be a highlighted experience during the Annual Blue Ridge Trout Fest (official Trout Fishing Festival of Georgia hosted by Trout Unlimited) and the 41st Annual Spring Arts in the Park Festival (North Georgia’s premier fine arts festival hosted by the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association). Combined visitor attendance to these festivals garners over 20,000+ individuals, and not to mention the media and marketing coverage being provided in combination with these festivals for the Trout Art Trail. Proceeds raised by the Trout Art Trail and Trout Art Trail Auction will fund the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association and the Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Unlimited. The Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities in the realm of the arts for the personal growth of the individual and the economic growth of the community by enhancing the accessibility of the arts, honoring our rich heritage, and promotion of multi-cultural arts in our community.Trout Unlimited is also a non-profit organization dedicated to conserving, protecting, and restoring coldwater fisheries through educational and conservation activities.
