P.A.I.N.T. Project

Saturday, October 22, 2011, 10 AM – 4 PM, the Center For Neighborhoods and volunteers came to the Garden to build and dedicate the P.A.I.N.T (Producing Art in Neighborhoods Together) project, GOAT(desic) DOMES: Exploring Our Connections by artists David Bibelhauser and Lauren Argo.  The geodesic domes will create an ideal space in the garden for the gardeners, neighbors and community to socialize, meditate, learn and relax.  “When you involve the community in creating a piece of art, its members are more connected to the work and are more likely to make it part of their lives.”  

There were informative workshops, refreshments by Red Hot Roasters, and kids’ activities.  A Food Truck was on site to purchase lunch.
