The summer heat has not been kind, but our devoted and talented artists overcame the challenge to create some fabulous murals. Hopefully, cooler weather will arrive in time for our next round of projects.
“The families and students really came out to help with this project. We had roughly 40 volunteers who stuck with us,” said Morgan Udoh, public arts and placemaking program coordinator for The Walls Project. “We completely transformed their backlot into a playground that they are going to be using in their instruction."
“And a special shout out to the staff who helped to guide the design that the artist incorporated to match their curriculum,” she added.
The project celebrating BREC’s 75th anniversary was another major project that got started during the dog days of summer. Three out of five of the locations are complete. They include Gus Young, Highland, and Baker BREC Park locations.
“The artist Ashli Ognelodh, did a wonderful job of incorporating the resources at each park in creating this park scavenger hunt.”
Still remaining are the projects at the parks located in Zachary and Central.
