Plaque for Sally Price a gift from the community

The Huntington House porch on the BAYarts campus will be renovated this summer and dedicated in honor of Sally Price.

As the director of Baycrafters for 30 years, Sally Price was the visionary responsible for many community projects and events that still resonate today. To honor her contributions, artist Paula Blackman of Blackbird Fine Art is creating a plaque that depicts the unique accomplishments of a unique woman.  

Paula, a nationally celebrated artist known for her large scale public works in bronze and stone had a special relationship with Sally. The group is reaching out to friends and family of Sally to fund the plaque as a community gift to Sally. Paula has waived her usual fees but materials and firing are costly; one-third of the goal of $3,000 has been raised through a GoFundMe campaign and donations made directly to BAYarts.

The plaque which will be installed on the BAYarts Huntington House porch and unveiled this summer. Those who knew Sally will recall that the porch was one of her favorite places to perch, greet visitors and find new inspiration from the view of the park. To prepare for the dedication, the porch is getting a long overdue face-lift, a project that that will be funded and executed by Eagle Scout Max Kunze. Local businesses such as Maple Leaf Landscaping and Hinkley Lighting are donating additional materials.

BAYarts' celebration of the many accomplishments of Sally Price will be held on Saturday, July 2, noon to 2 p.m., and is open to the community. Donations for the plaque should be made through BAYarts.
