A special outdoor art event will occur in Columbus Park this Spring/Summer. To rally the community to come together and speak about their community. From children to seniors, in English & in Chinese, with images or without, this opportunity is for all to be heard. Especially welcome are those atuned to the decisions that face Chinatown and know that the future of Chinatown is in our hands. Their voice, ideas, and statements will be painted on panels 18x24” all around the outside gates of Columbus Park at a distance of 15-20 feet of each other. A total of about 70-80 panels will be up, Once a week the artists (and volunteers) will come in on the weekend to repaint some panels, and repaint new comments and thoughts on the panels. On the weekends an Open Day where the artists will attend the installation and invite community members to write down their comments on the panels. Read more at www.artspiral.org/new.html
