  2. Get out the Vote (1959)

    September 21, 2019, All Day

    After a series of floods hit Anacortes in the late 1950's, Wallie Funk decided that he'd had enough. Living in a town without storm drains was presenting both a financial and safety problem for residents. In 1956 and 1959, Funk took two sets of photographs of the fallout of the floods. These photos ran today in order to force the issue into the towns political agenda. Two days later on September 23rd, the newspaper reported that 89% of the town was in favor of implementing storm drains. Wallie's work has kept us safe from large scale flooding ever since.

Today he stands outside the Eagles Club, forever memorialized as a mural by the hand of Bill Mitchell.

  4. Maiden of Deception Pass unveiled and dedicated (1983)

    September 24, 2019, All Day @ Deception Pass

    Samish legend tells of the maiden Ko-kwai-awoot, a beautiful woman of whom a man from beneath the sea fell in love with. The man asked her father for her hand in marriage, however he refused out of fear of her drowning. The man told the father that if he didn't have her the food of the sea would disappear. Faced with this reality, the maiden and her father accepted and she went to live with her new husband in the depths of the ocean. Since then, food has been plentiful. Carved with passion by Anacortes based artist Tracy Powell, the maiden stands as a symbol of Native pride.
