The first five Great Blue Herons are now proudly on display throughout the City of Dickinson. Seeded by the City's HOT Tax and coordinated by the Dickinson Art Guild, this community partnership has been a great success. Each heron represents a charitable component through a donation to the preservation of the bayou, funding for future arts programs in the City, and the general welfare of the City.
The herons are to be placed in front of businesses and bayou-front homes in the City to create a scavenger hunt much like you see in cities across Texas. With the first five locations being:
City Hall - "Aviary" painted by Doug Hiser - 4403 Hwy 3
The City held a recognition ceremony Thursday, May 12th at 5:30pm in front of City Hall for Doug Hiser's heron, "Aviery". There was a brief presentation by the artist, the Dickinson Art Guild, and the Mayor. Members of Council and the Art Guild were also present.
