SalmonChantedHarbor is an array of beautifully decorated artwork from local artists that will be displayed around downtown Gig Harbor from May 28 – September 6, 2010. Fifteen locations will host the artwork within the historic downtown area. This year’s artistic theme is the heron, one of our area’s most beloved and iconic residents. Proceeds from SalmonChantedHarbor will go to Peninsula Hands on Art, a program which brings original art lessons to thousands of local schoolchildren.

Please join us to enjoy the creativity and talent of our local artists, as well as support a wonderful educational program.
