Last weekend we painted the streets. And we weren’t the only ones. There were lots of us!
Arts R Alive, a local group that formed to bring sculptures to West Twin Park back in 2011 and are continuing to do so, got together last year and thought it might be fun to paint the streets as a way to do a little fund raising. 18 x 18 squares were laid out, businesses and organizations were invited to buy a square and come down and paint this past weekend. The funds raised are going for the long term care of West Twin Park where the Sculpture Contest has been held, and the street where the painting is done borders.
The Mayor had leftover paint from clean up day. A truckload of leftover paint – that is going to cost thousands of dollars to take to the landfill and it’s paint that residents dropped off to be disposed for free. What a great way to use the paint! He brought some of it down for the painters to use, at no charge.
Check out the short video of some of the work and imagine what your town could put together if you decided to paint the streets!
