Public Art In Historic Kenwood!
This year for our tour we launched our first public art project. And the first project is… (drum roll, please!) Bench Art — turning our Seminole Park benches into works of art. Artist Enclave members were invited to submit design proposals. Chosen artists painted benches, creating another wonderful Kenwood attraction before BungalowFest 2017. They were be paid up to $400 per bench. Our hope is that this first project begins the transformation of Seminole Park – and other areas throughout Historic Kenwood – into magnets of delight. Durable Coatings at 3055 - 1st Avenue South has generously donated paint. There are many more projects in the works scheduled after this one, lasting several years. Not all of us are artists, but we can all be champions of art.  For more info or if you have creative ideas, just email me at McGrath.TandL@gmail.com , and we’ll get in touch. Laura McGrath
