Seven dedicated members work together throughout the year to organize and make Artarama’s Riverwalk Art Show & Sale happen. Explains Karen Kubacki, Artarama vice-chair, “The purpose of this show is still twofold. It is organized to bring a high quality art show to Eagle River, along with the commerce that is a result of many visitors being drawn to the area. But more importantly, it is still organized, as it was in 1972, to raise funds that are all returned to the community as scholarships, art programs, beautification projects and services.” Artarama also sponsors and organizes artist-in-residence programs for local schools. Artarama remains a non-profit organization and donated the "Spirit of America" bronze eagle park to enhance Eagle River’s downtown area. Savings set aside by the original 5-member Artarama Committee beginning in 1972 along with generous donations of time and material of area businesses enabled the committee to complete the project. It is located just north of the Eagle River Depot. We invite you to take a picture of it to add to your portfolio of your Eagle River experience or sit and relax on a bench. We are working towards a new vision sculptures in the green area at the new library which should be built in the coming years.
Artarama remains one of the summer’s most exciting events and a viable source of community-generated charitable funds. There are always new exhibitors and of course some are back year after year.
Enjoy refreshments this year on and around the Riverside Park. Food vendors will offer a variety of lunch choices, snack foods and beverages that you can enjoy while purchasing artwork.
The Eagle River Lions Club will be parking cars and donating revenue to their various causes. We encourage you to make the nominal donation to these hard-working members.
