Ribbon cutting ceremony, "Annie Curtis" at Cap Sante Marina
Plaque at base of sculpture
Artist Gerad Tsutukawa and "Annie Curtis"
It was April 2008 when renowned Northwest sculptor Gerard Tsutakawa and team delivered the sculpture “Annie Curtis” to its home at Cap Sante Marina. A beautiful day for placement and unveiling, with many arts community and Port of Anacortes dignitaries on hand. Among those pictured here are Tsutakawa, Rita James, Bill Short, Bob Hyde and Joan Tezak.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
