Legend has it that if you follow a rainbow to the end you will be rewarded with a pot of gold. The rainbow on the hydrant at the corner of Hancock Ave. & Thomas Dr. has something much better within it.  You can find WATER!  Sure, gold is pretty, but everyone can agree water is essential and much more valuable than gold.

A rainbow is a natural meteorological phenomenon, but the one near the Washington St. parking deck was created by local artist Maggie Baxter.  
The "Rainbow Sky" takes full advantage of the contours of a fire hydrant, giving us a three-dimensional rainbow that wraps and bends.  Maggie specializes in watercolor, pen and ink, and acrylics.  Her fanciful animals are the perfect decoration for any nursery.  Star Wars fans will also appreciate her artistic take on well-known characters from the legendary movie.
