Our Community Art Build is complete! On Saturday August 1st and Saturday August 8th, volunteers participated in building and painting three boat-shaped benches for the 2015 Unruly Architectonic Installation, to be located near Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts and Winston Square Park.

Designed by Community Design Studio, the installation gives kids of all ages the chance to play interactively with jump boxes, hopscotch, and other fun activities. The creatively designed benches will allow passersby the opportunity to relax in an artistic atmosphere.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the build! We’re so glad you came out to build art and build community with us. Here are a few snapshots from our time together:
