Unique artwork will be installed on the top of each pole creating a gallery of small sculptural elements along Edmonds' downtown streets and providing visual interest during the months without flower baskets. Donors are invited to purchase a unique flower basket pole to commemorate or honor a person or organization with a small plaque. The tax deductible donation is $2000.
