The River Kids project is a series of bronze figures that connect the downtown area of Grants Pass to the river. It reflects and celebrates our unique river heritage. The creation of the River Kids was a joint effort between Evergreen Federal Bank and Art Along the Rogue.
The project included three life-size figures of children engaged in a variety of children’s adventures along the river, set in the 1930’s, ‘40s and ’50s. These romanticized images tell a story of a simpler time in our history and capture a river spirit that was, and still is, a part of who we are today. The first “River Kids” bronze was unveiled in April 2006. The second bronze was unveiled in early 2007. They both can be seen along 6th street in downtown Grants Pass.
