Come and be inspired!
The Dave McKay Parade Art Grant Fund supports the development of art and performance for the Fremont Solstice Parade. In an age of mass culture, a special kind of courage is needed to bring creative self-expression into the public arena. Dave McKay was a celebration artist who brought his master costume-design skills, thoughtful intention, and deep attention to detail and craftsmanship to all his art, especially in his work with the Fremont Solstice Parade and Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration. He believed art and art making should be a part of everyone’s life. The primary goal of the Dave McKay Parade Art Grant Fund is to support artists in their efforts to bring engaging art to the streets of Fremont, and to enhance community creativity and collaboration.
