I work for the City of Raleigh, Public Utilities dept., so sometimes I can get these fire hydrants and paint them like the characters I have made so far. I've only kept the R2-D2 hydrant, C-3PO hydrant, and the minion hydrant. Ash from Army of Darkness was a Christmas gift. The UNC Basketball player hydrant and Marvin the Martian hydrant were requests from friends. The dalmatian hydrant may be going to the local fire dept as a gift. Hope you enjoy the pictures and I'll post more as I make them.

Those are great! It would be wonderful if the city would allow all of their hydrants to be painted up like some of these---the citizenry would really get behind it!

Let me check your shorts!

Those look great! Awesome creativity, I swear there's always something I haven't seen before on this site.

Many, Many years ago my hometown in WI had a contest for kids to enter and paint a hydrant. It was great to drive around town as I was growing up and see all of the neet painting. Whatever happened to the good old days.

Times have changed, my friend. Too much "risk" involved in letting artistic liberty run free in public areas - someone might get offended... and we'd never want that to happen, after all.

Pretty sad, actually.


BTW - nice hydrants! I love seeing things like this there where pop culture is adapted to everyday mundane objects - especially when they're done so creatively. thumb

Yeah, fire hydrants are probably way to phallic for the people in charge the way it is.

...or some one might paint one like Jesus. Then where would we be?
