4th July Community Art Project
Thursday, May 26th, 8-11pm
Join John at 1978 for the kick off of the annual 4th of July project. This year, rather than the heavy boards of the previous 2 years, he plans to use Tyvek. The first session is most important and he could use some help cutting and grommeting tyvek pixels for the crowd image.
The provision of wine and cheese will lighten the mood and make the work go faster!
