Art For Everyone


This painting by Alyssa Peterson is one of three in the artist’s Geiser-Pollman Park series. Two of the paintings, including this one of the slide at the park, are on loan from Peterson and are displayed at City Hall. The city bought one of the three paintings. (S. John Collins/Baker City Herald)

City buys painting, also looking for ideas for old merry-go-round 

By Lisa Britton

For the Baker City Herald

Baker City is seeking someone to give a new life to the merry-go-round that was removed from Geiser-Pollman Park this spring.

The piece, which is more than 50 years old, was part of the equipment replaced in May with new play structures. The merry-go-round was removed intact and saved.

Now the City’s Public Arts Commission is accepting proposals from artists who have an idea on how to preserve the merry-go-round.

Proposals will be accepted through Jan. 31, 2015.

“Every day counts ... in the life of a child in foster care.”

The motto is a driving force behind the Citizen Review Board (CRB) of the  Oregon Judicial Department.

According to the department’s website the CRB, legislated in 1985, is a statewide foster care review program made up of citizen volunteers to help state courts ensure that case plans and services meet the needs of children in foster care.
