Two artist residencies have started in Old Town. Artist Dan Coe is painting a mural depicting the fireweed plant’s life cycle on the Driftwood RV Park fence on Bunnell Avenue. The second residency is “Poetry on the Trail,” by poet Wendy Erd. Under a collaborative partnership by Bunnell Street Arts Center with the Alaska Islands and Oceans Visitor Center, the city of Homer and the U.S .Fish and Wildlife Service, Erd will create the poetic content of interpretive signs for Old Town’s Beluga Slough. Erd has been doing an on-site residency in the Slough area and writing poems. The signs will be completed by December and installed in the spring of 2014.
