Fantastic Figures Auction - Art Builds Community

The Felton Library Friends Fantastic Figures Auction benefits the Felton Library and Bull Creek Discovery Park in Felton, CA. Each figure is a larger-than-life garden art sculpture (see each auction for the exact size). They are mounted on landscape poles, and can be sunk in the ground or attached to a fence. All proceeds will finance aspects of the new library that the community desires but are not covered by the bond measure passed by voters last fall.

Thank you, artists!

Many thanks to these artists for all their work and creativity!

Eileen Murray, Sophie Webb, Janet Silverqlate, Lise Bixler, Nina Moore, Eleanor Carolan, Bill Jurgens, Karen Asherah, Jennifer Hennig, Karen Close, Alexis Spakoski
