We will have three events beginning in June and ending in September. These events will be free and opend to the public and artists. Goals, use creation and involvement in art to engage community residents in participating in the improvement of blighted neighborhoods with contribution from skilled artists celebrating their cultural heritage and culture through painting. We will be hanging the decorated panels covering windows and doors of empty buildings designated by Genesee County Landbank. The three picnic type events will be held in Durant Park it will be a day long neighborhood celebration that will include hands/ on painting experince for the community memebers and local/ youth art groups. There will also be chalk art on the side walk, music, and food for all. We would like to include future partners who have goals in common with this project. The panels will be painted all Summer long so we have enough to board up at least 20 homes. This event is made possible by Greater Flint Arts Council with generous funding from the Ruth Mott Foundation.
