Ati Peterson, a local Washington artist, donated her original watercolor of the Washington Fire Department’s Station 1 (dedicated 1/1/1996).  Watercolors are Mrs. Peterson’s preferred artistic medium, and she enjoys painting homes and buildings as she has a background in interior architectural and graphic design.

Prints of the watercolor (8 x 15 print size fitting a 13 x 19 frame) are available to purchase through the Fire Department for $75.00.  Mrs. Peterson will donate a portion of each sale to the department as a fundraiser for fire prevention materials.  Please contact Paula Skory, phone 309-444-8642, or email washcorp@washingtonfd.com if you would like to purchase a print.
