Near the exit of our parking lot is a line of plain concrete "jersey" barriers. They do their job marking the property line, but they aren't pretty! We are seeking applications (PDF, 443KB, 4 pages) from local artists to transform the barriers into artwork this spring! The artwork should tie into 2021's Summer Learning Program theme, "Tails and Tales," and it will be displayed for about a year. Click here for more details.
