Sturgeons Are Going, Going, Gone

On Sept. 21, 17 sturgeons and eight freeform pieces were up for auction at the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center’s annual street art auction – Sturgeon Around the Bay. After a fast and sometimes furious bidding battle, all of the street art was sold, generating approximately $62,200 gross proceeds to partially benefit the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center’s promotions, programs and city beautification efforts.

The auction crowd also voted for their favorite sturgeon for the People’s Choice Award; the award went to Chondra Holschbach and Cori Rosen. The top five sellers were Rob Soukup, Chonda Holschbach and Cori Rosen, Jim Rigoni, Amanda Hatton and Matt Stender.
