Peonies on Pioneer
This collaboration of civic, private and non-profit partners is a task force of Homer Chamber of Commerce. We aim to enliven Pioneer Avenue as an economic district, attracting visitors and residents to linger and explore Homer’s historic core. Partners are sponsoring murals and gardens with a peony theme to celebrate and leverage Homer’s assets in the arts, agriculture and recreation. With support from Homer Foundation, Bunnell Street Arts Center sponsors artist in residence, muralist Kady Perry from New Orleans in June. Additional support comes from the sale of “Peonies on Pioneer” Tshirts. Kady Perry facilitated mural workshops and leading a team of many volunteers to create these murals around Homer.
We aim to someday have a summer Peony Festival in Homer centered on Pioneer Avenue, giving Homer a boost similarly to the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival and the Halibut Derby. If you would like a mural designed and painted by local Homer artists who participated during Kady’s residency, please contact us!
