The Huntington Arts Initiative Inc., is sponsoring an outdoor art exhibit again this year featuring fire hydrants in and around the business district in Huntington.

The exhibit will open Aug. 21.

Anyone interested in either painting a hydrant or being a sponsor of the exhibit may contact Debbie Dyer at 356-8874, Rich Najuch at 454-0449 or Ann Siegfried at 356-6951 for further information.

All proceeds from the exhibit go toward the renovation of "The Studio," the buildings at the corner of Warren and Market streets, which will become a professional gallery and performance and classroom space.
