The Middleburg Garden Club was approached by professional artist and member Debbie Cadenas who had this great idea. “We have been looking for more ways to help this town and build this community,” said President Darcy Justen, “This was perfect. We look forward to working with the Arts Council and the town on raising money for beautification. Our town has been through a lot this past year.” Most shops, business, and schools were very excited to sponsor a fox, and all the artists are donating their time and talent to this wonderful project. This event will launch April 1 with all 32 pieces of art in the shape of a fox hanging for all to see on the iron fence located on the corner of Main Street. The 7-week event will close with a large Art In The Burg event. All the bidding will be online through their Facebook page Foxes On The Fence. There will be lots of advertising, brochures, and information on bidding coming up soon all over the town.

Look for a People’s Choice Award where you get to pick your favorite fox on the Foxes On The Fence Facebook page coming soon. The artist will receive a cash prize and be announced at the Art in Burg Event May 20, 2017.

There seems to be quite a bit of excitement surrounding this event maybe even local news station coverage, so we will keep you posted.

All the Fox sponsorships are taken and artist slots filled, but if you have any other questions, please contact Darcy Justen
