Hello Friends, Neighbors, Donors, and Painters,
As of Monday, we are finally finished washing brushes and moving our paint operation into winter storage. Reflecting on our painting extravaganza, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for all the people who brought their gifts to our mural -- on our big paint weekend AND over the many months preceding it. Your energy, artistic skill, kindness, and willingness to lend a hand -- again and again -- are what makes such an enormous & complex piece of art possible. Thank you!
As we add up the numbers, we've realized we had more than 450 volunteers participate in the mural installation. Wow.
THANK YOU for YOUR contribution to Paint the Street. Thank you for those who helped before the event -- and after -- with set-up and clean-up. Thank you for those who marked and measured, swept & washed, chalked gridlines, drew, mixed paint, set up barricades, greeted volunteers, carried paint, sang and danced, organized supplies, wrote, and took pictures.
Thank you to those who painted. Thank you to those who shared stories from your lives and your cultures. Thank you to those who saved the day, running to get last-minute supplies like bagels, white paint, plastic bags, soap, and pressure washers.
Thank you for the forgotten tasks that I've failed to mention, simply because it's difficult to keep track of all the miracles of cooperation that happen when hundreds of people work together towards a common goal.
This project would not have been possible without the early and enthusiastic support of the City of Davis, as well as the California Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Their kindness has allowed our imaginations and hearts to grow, as we created a new "heart" for our north Davis village.
Thank you to those who donated, from $2 to $4000, to cover the costs of the expanded project, including that enormous dragon cul-de-sac.
The cul-de-sac dragon would have been IMPOSSIBLE without the generous support of Asphalt Impressions, Dos Coyotes, West Yost Associates, Chickpeas, and the Good Scoop, as well as donations from over 100 individuals. Live music was organized the Davis Waldorf School.
Helping hands who donated time, space, and/or equipment included: Amber Manfree Cartography; Bucio's Roofing; Atria Covell Gardens; City of Davis Public Works & Police Departments; Davis Manor Neighborhood Council; Davis Media Access; Dos Pinos Housing Cooperative; Elite Roofing Supply; Fabulous Musicians; John Zibell Photography; and Tandem Properties
Delicious food for volunteers provided by: Chickpeas Kitchen, Davis Food Co-op, the Good Scoop, Grocery Outlet, Noah’s Bagels, Peet’s Coffee, and Taqueria Guadalajara.
The design was created by myself, Danielle Fodor, with assistant Judy Catambay, supporting artists Carlea Warren-Rossi & Josiah Lopez, and the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, based on input from 150 residents. The event (with those amazing 450 painters) would have been impossible without the dedicated heavy lifting for MONTHS of the Creative Action Team: Raychel Kubby Adler, Juliette Beck, Nick Buxton, Judy Catambay, Gina Gemignani, Meg Gurley, Dolly Hamilton, Sarah Keith, Josiah Lopez, Sarah Mandel, Christine McCrory, Leonie Pickett, Stephanie Schoen, Jenny Tom, Carlea Warren-Rossi and the support of many skilled artists who volunteered their time.
With an open heart and much gratitude,
Here it is! The finished mural design.
This design is to-scale has simplified colors for an easy, 3-day installation -- as a giant paint by number.
The flow of the mural is shown here from South to North, since South is the traditional entry to the neighborhood from the rest of the city.
For orientation "SOUTH" is written where the back gate of Atria Covell Gardens is located, and the first bindweed blossom surrounds a bench there.
ELEMENTAL celebrates the power of nature: Air, Earth, Water, and Fire, along with the power of the spirit, culture, and the unseen. Classical elements are explored with portraits of the plants and animals you can find along the greenbelt -- as well as powerful symbols from the many cultures of neighbors who meet up along our shared pathways.
Scroll down to see CLOSE-UPS of the mural image as well as a description of WHAT went into the design -- aka the ideas behind the pictures.
Starting* just past Chautauqua Apartments, near Atria Covell Gardens South Gate....
Entering the mural, Field Bindweed (aka Morning Glory) breaks up the concrete, showing the power of nature to overcome and outlast what people build. Field Bindweed also acts as an allusion to European ancestors, whose culture (like those beautiful flowers) has proven invasive, claiming the landscape around us and overrunning what came before. The heart/spear-shaped leaves remind us of the importance and challenge of loving our neighbors.
The first element, AIR blows in with Japanese woodcut-inspired Wind, carrying Dandelion seeds (another European immigrant) toward the EARTH, certain to place deep roots in the heavy clay surrounding.
The wind blows other creatures and cultures forward. A Bald Eagle feather (sacred to Native Americans and symbol of the USA) flies in on the wind. The Butterfly, part Tiger Swallowtail and part Monarch, reminds of migrating animals and people, who travel from South to North and back again in annual migrations.
From AIR, Bindweed breaks across the concrete again, introducing our next element: EARTH. Yellow taproots grow down from the bindweed. This amazing plant can send roots 9 feet down, its power and endurance stored from places unseen.
Staring at that root in the EARTH is the Sankofa bird. This Adinkra bird symbol traveled here with West African people who were brought to the Americas as slaves. Sankofa means "Go back and Fetch it". The bird looks backwards for an egg it has dropped, while its feet face forwards. Its posture reminds us to return to the past to retrieve what we have lost. In order to move towards the future, we must connect back across years and generations -- a good reminder in this space shared by college students, seniors, and families.
A goofy Turkey and Dog show up next, squabbling along the greenbelt path, where wild meets domestic. The Turkey's style is inspired in part both children's whimsical "handprint turkeys" and by artist Anne Syer, who lives at the nearby Atria senior living facility, and paints fantastic birds with wild feathers. (Anne's artwork also inspired the sunflower that can be found in the FIRE section.)
Dogs are the only animal that was domesticated in pre-Colombian Americas, with new breeds brought over with Europeans. Dogs of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds and heritages peruse our neighborhood -- echoing the diversity of peoples who live here.
NOTE: Both the Dog and Sankofa appear "upside-down" in these drawings, but since people walk both ways along the path, there is no upside-down. The mural is designed to be enjoyed differently from each angle.
Protected by another root, the Red-Shafted Flicker bird gathers a nutritious Acorn from the EARTH. Red-Shafted Flickers are sacred to California's Native American community, honored in a traditional men's dance, and much loved by birders in our neighborhood for their bright red underwing. The Flicker opens its wings onto the concrete, returning us to the VOID. The VOID, also known as the SPIRIT, connects us to the unknown and world beyond the physical.
Field Bindweed returns to usher in calm, soothing WATER with the East Asian Koi fish, associated with harmony, happiness, and good fortune. WATER is also home to the Turtle, featured in legends from around the world, for his wisdom and navigation skills. The Lotus blossom, an Asian symbol of purity, grows improbably from the Bindweed vine. On the other side of the Lotus, FIRE erupts with warm colors, paisley patterns of South Asia, red leaves of the nearby Pistache trees, and heat-loving Sunflower and Lizard.
Speaking of the Lizard -- kids in our neighborhood love to catch those wild and wiggly FIRE-y creatures: the Lizard in summer and Crayfish in winter. So it is the Crayfish that returns us to the WATER with a river, and a majestic Egret that carries that river forward in to the VOID.
Here the mural pauses for about 100 feet as the pathway rounds a curve, only to return in an explosion of color at Hacienda Avenue.
Now we enter the dragon!
WhileddIn the cul-de-sac, Elements and Cultures mix and mingle.
The River re-emerges to become a winding spiral WATER Dragon. At the mouth of Hacienda Avenue, another Adinkra symbol, the Crocodile appears. More Turtle-shaped to our western eyes, the Crocodile symbolizes adaptability, through his ability to live in both water and earth.
The WATER Dragon is a fusion of a traditional Chinese dragon and a more playful, Pokemon-inspired Dragotini Dragon-Serpent. Pokemon is super popular in our neighborhood, and players often gather on this cul-de-sac and head towards the greenbelt lawn. Our Dragon's back will be patterned with scales made with more Adinkra symbols from West Africa, most likely the gorgeous "Snake Climbing the Raffia Tree" pattern symbolizing persistence.
Our WATER Dragon breathes out FIRE and light. In the mixture of FIRE and WATER, the renewing Rainbow is born -- in a series of colorful Koi fish.
Surrounding the spiral labyrinth is EARTH scattered with Elderberry leaves, blossoms, and berries. Elderberry is native to our area and grows along the nearby North Davis ditch. Blue Elderberry is valued by Native Americans for its medicinal properties, as well as the strong stalks used to make Clapper Sticks for women's dancing. Elderberry is also treasured by Europeans -- the berries are used to make jams, cordials, and wine, while the flowers make a delicious syrup. EARTH -- and plant life within it -- is something all cultures value and benefit from.
Birds and butterflies fly in on AIR currents from the North, including Red Tail Hawks, Hummingbirds, and migrating Monarchs. While the drawing here shows only Hawks, we are still working on a final addition of Hummingbirds, who will feature in the final installation. Hummingbirds are a source of constant delight, with their antics and colorful feathers, found throughout the Americas, from Alaska to Chile. They symbolize friendship and playfulness. The whimsical birds pictured here are inspired by the drawings of Steven Garrett, who lives in nearby Atria.
NOTE: Where is the labyrinth? For traditional labyrinth walkers, the labyrinth is not just a spiral, but a winding path that goes from outside to center and back again, through a circuitous route that encourages a walking meditation. Our labyrinth is a bit more free-form and open to interpretation. Walkers can follow the dark blue dragon outline in and out, or walk in along the rainbow, and out the dragon. You are invited to create your own labyrinth as you explore the finished art -- as we each do, with the choices we make in our lives.
* The mural design will eventually begin outside Bianco Court and Chatuaqua Apartments with a colorful crossroads symbol -- but we are waiting for some feedback from the Yocha Dehe Wintun tribe before finalizing that.
We need over 200 volunteers to bring this mural to life -- over the weekend of October 12-14. No skill needed.

Dear Neighbors and Friends,
We did it!
Thank you to all who helped bring our mural to life through our August funding campaign. Your support made it incredibly successful – we received 100 donations in our 40 day campaign – ranging from $5 to $2000. All the little donations added up (along with the big ones) to some massive art.
Along with our crowdfunding donors, we were blessed to enjoy the support of 2 businesses: Asphalt Impressions and Dos Coyotes. See some of the amazing murals that Asphalt Impressions makes, at the end of this post.
What does this mean?
The Amazing News: We have brought our dragon to life! The mural will include over 5000 square feet of paint, over a 10,000 square foot surface of street and greenbelt pathways. We will paint the dragon labyrinth with a vibrant terra-cotta background color.
What about Spider Park? We are about $600 short of our fundraising goal to complete the artwalk North/South and paint Spider Park. But –- we still have donations coming in, so we figure we just need more time. We will continue to collect donations for Spider Park between now and next Spring, tentatively planning for another community paint day in the Spring. This will give us a reason to come together again, for more art! Donate here.
Thanks for your generous support! We can’t wait to make art with you.
AND the amazing Senda Nueva Creative Action Team:

Check out this Super Cool Mural from Asphalt Impressions, our kind sponsor!
Paint day is almost here -- only 1 day before we begin drawing the design.
We still need helpers to set up and wash the street Friday morning and to greet volunteers throughout the weekend. It's not to late to sign up to paint -- or to lend a hand to children, elders, or other folks who need some extra love to participate. You can signup to volunteer here.
Just want to check it out? The best day to view the finished mural is Sunday Oct 14 (while the road is still closed) or anytime the following weeks. You can find us at Hacienda Ave in Davis, where it meets the greenbelt. There is a map linked here.
Still want to paint? We often have neighbors drop-in to paint, without advance sign-ups, and we will try to accommodate you if we can -- please BYO Brush if at all possible -- and understand that there may/may not be a job available right when you arrive.
Speaking of brushes -- as we aim to cover a few unexpected costs -- you can still donate to support the project here.
Two days out from painting -- I'm reminded of the generosity of our community, local businesses, and our government agencies in supporting this project. Over 100 individuals have donated (online or in person), and many more have given generously of their time -- several today, as I gave a last minute call out for people to help pressure wash & prep the site.
So here's some thank yous for all those who've made it possible -- first, to the people in our neighborhood, for sharing their time, ideas, energy, and endless support.
Second, to the government agencies that made this mural a possibility -- and gave the neighborhood the opportunity to spend time dreaming with me. Thank you!
Thanks to the businesses who have supported this project with their financial sponsorship. We appreciate your help making this dream a reality!
And finally, to the many kind organizations who've given us a helping hand -- either with in-kind donations or professional assistance. Thank you!

FABULOUS FOOD FROM:
The Good Scoop
People tell me we need a map -- to show where the mural will go, what is funded, and what is not. So here you go!
Thanks to the digital artists who worked on bringing this map to life: Nik Joshi for combining the map and mural design and Josiah Lopez, for better defining the dragon's face based on workshop feedback.
The cherry at the top of our mural sundae, so to speak, is a mini-mural at Spider Park. This site would only get painted if we get fully funded, as it requires another skilled artist assistant to supervise a crew of volunteer painters. This site was ranked just below Hacienda Ave in our location survey, but some neighbors feel very passionate about it, as a spot where people often stop and chat -- and a site where the northern section of the neighborhood crosses paths, and where elders could be attracted into a space currently most inviting for children.
The design for this site is based on kid's drawings from our 5 day long Drop-in Design workshop -- where heaps of kids drew treehouses. It would feature creatures from the sidewalk Elemental design, repeated here (lizard, sunflower, turkey). It leaves space for kids to add to the mural with their sidewalk chalk drawings.
As you can see, this idea is still kinda rough and needs some finessing -- which I will do very happily, once I'm more certain we'll have enough money to paint it!
The magic of crowdfunding is... a lot of tiny donations add up to a WHOLE LOT of money.
So please help us turn our mural dreams into reality -- Donate Today!
The votes are in!
ELEMENTAL was the #1 design chosen by neighbors (both at the final workshop and through absentee voting).
The ELEMENTAL design celebrates the power of nature while highlighting the diverse cultural traditions of our neighbors, with artistic styles and symbols pulled from many cultures.
The design starts on the greenbelt path outside Bianco Court and Chautauqua Apartments with a colorful compass, to help people find their way as they enter the neighborhood. But the real color gets going just north of Atria Covell Gardens, where wind and air blow seeds and butterflies north.
The invasive but beautiful plant Field Bindweed reminds us of the power of nature, breaking up the concrete pathway and introducing each of the elements – Air, Earth, Water, and Fire. Within each element, plants, animals, symbols rendered in styles from many distinct cultural traditions celebrate who we might meet on our walk through the neighborhood.
As the pathway turns east, the concrete opens into an asphalt cul-de-sac at Hacienda Avenue. Here flowing water turns into a wild water dragon, inspired by both Chinese dragons and the Pokemon players who frequent the neighborhood. The water dragon doubles as a walking labyrinth, with rainbow fish swimming inside it.
From the north, up Hacienda Avenue come birds and butterflies, reminding us of both creature and human migrants who travel our neighborhood.

Thanks again to all who voted, and to Gina who counted all our absentee ballots.
Design Workshop 3: Finalizing the Fabulous!
Notes from from the third (and final) public design workshop, written by Carlea Rossi (art intern extraordinaire)
This past Sunday, more than 25 residents of Senda Nueva gathered together, with the help of artist team Danielle Fodor, Judy Catambay, and Carlea Rossi, to discuss and vote on the final mural design to be painted on the pedestrian pathway behind Atria.
People from ages 10 to 92 sang, reminisced and shared their love for the neighborhood, singing songs and making new friendships along the way.
In total, Danielle drafted three different designs from the ideas created from the previous workshops.
The three proposed designs included:
Love Grows Wild: This design portrays relationships between people and creatures who inhabit the green belt, while giving visual form to “Love your Neighbor” across cultures and differences. Starting with a ladybug in flight at the bench behind Atria, the design continues a little farther along the pathway with bees pollinating flowers and sharing them with birds, who are then sniffed by dogs being walked by their owners. Then come the squirrels who share their acorns with a dog and a turkey, followed further along the path by a turkey chasing a magical snake in the grass. Each character communicates with the others in their own way, surrounded by heart designs from different cultures to celebrate diversity in the neighborhood. At the entrance to Bianco Court, a directional marker of different animals that symbolize the kinds of people who come and go along the pathway: from a bird in flight symbolizing the bicyclists who ride through the greenbelt, to a bee symbolizing the students who continue past the green belt, pollinating out into the world. If the design were to continue into Hacienda Court, it would include a dandelion sprouting from entrance into the cul-de-sac, surrounded by butterflies and hearts.
Every River Flows to the Sea: Focusing on a water theme, this design was influenced by those from the neighborhood who love water and feel connected to farflung waterways as they walk our greenbelt, headed towrds the North Davis ditch. Starting with a rainbow trout near the bench behind Atria, the design continues with flowing water inspired by Japanese embroidery, along the pathway leading to Hacienda Court. Residents could follow along the path created by the waves, finding creatures familiar to the neighborhood like lizards, turkeys, egrets and birds, sprinkled throughout the water scene. A directional marker at Bianco Court would include a colorful sea turtle, and in Hacienda Court, the design would include a friendly child-like sun, smiling down on a sailboat headed out to sea, surrounded by wind, butterflies, and birds.
*Elemental: This colorful design would focus on elements in nature and the seasons, which change with the green belt. Near Atria Covell Gardens, powerful bindweed begins to crack up the concrete, introducing the elements of nature, the creatures found in the greenbelt, and the cultures who share our neighborhood.
Heading south from Atria, butterflies fly in the wind, animals gather in the earth, fish and turtles swim through water, and flowers bloom and lizards crawl through the heat of fire. The directional marker near Bianco Court would include a Native American symbol for the four directions. At Hacienda Avenue, the water transforms into a Chinese-inspired water dragon spiral, surrounded by fish and plants, with birds and butterflies flying in from the north.
After the three designs were introduced, residents were separated into groups to discuss their favorite designs, and advocate for why it was the best! This which was followed by the final vote.
The clear workshop winner was Elemental with 13 votes, followed by Every River Flows to the Sea with 5 votes and Love Grows Wild with 3 votes.
The neighbors then voted to change a few parts of the Elemental design, deciding to add:
Designs are still subject to additional changes if needed from the City of Davis, nearby residents, and deeper cultural / ecological research.
Absentee voting will be open for 1 week, as a runoff between the top 2 drawings (Every River and Elemental).
You can view drawings and vote for your favorite, stored in a portfolio at the mouth of Hacienda Cul-de-Sac until July 9.
Location Survey #2 (aka the final vote) has been tabulated, and the results reviewed with the Creative Action Team to make decisions based on it.
Here is a summary of what you've told us!
Total respondents for location survey #2: 35
People attending Walking Tour #2: ~ 23
It is most important that the mural location provide opportunities for:
LOCATION PREFERENCE: MAIN SITE
Please rank your preference for the primary mural location
*Option A: Pedestrian Pathway North of Atria Covell Gardens - 15 votes
Option B: Hacienda Avenue Cul-de-sac near greenbelt - 13 votes
Option C: Blue / Spiderman Park near Eagle Place - 7 votes
SECONDARY SITE PREFERENCES
Survey respondents could either vote to rank the sites by preference or simply write "no" for sites they didn't want painted. The most popular feasible sites are listed below starting with the most popular.
*1st Choice: Pathway Icon on Greenbelt near Bianco Court and Chautauqua Apartments
2nd Choice: Mini-Mural at Hacienda
3rd Choice: Mini-Mural as Concrete Pad of Blue/Spiderman Playground
We currently have enough funds to paint The Pedestrian Pathway North of Atria Covell Gardens (Option A), the Pathway Icon on the Greenbelt near Bianco Court, and about 1/8 the area of Hacienda Court. 4 people volunteered to help fundraise for enough paint for the secondary sites via the survey, and will be working over the coming months to supersize this project with a more generous budget.
You can donate now to fund MORE MURAL ART art at Hacienda Avenue cul de sac and Blue/Spiderman Park.
"No Go" sites:
Sites vetoed by survey responses:
These are the sites were eliminated as possibilities because that received the at least 4 "NO" votes and/or received very few 1st choice rankings.
Sidewalk at Antelope Alley (aka Halloween/Pumpkin Alley)
Pathway between Impala and Elk Places
Antelope and Quail intersection
Brown Belt Crossings
Y pathway intersection Northeast of Dominos*
* The Y intersection received many 1st choice votes, but was determined not feasible by the Creative Action Team because it received an equal number of “NO” votes.
Sites not feasible:
The crosswalk at Quail was ranked highly by survey respondents, but is not currently feasible due to unclear regulations and requirements from Public Works department.
This is a great time to remind you all that this mural is a project of the City of Davis Arts and Cultural Affairs program, and is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
We have completed a walking tour, a location survey, and received tons of info from Senda Nueva residents via info sessions and designs workshops. Here is a summary of that that you've told us!
Location Survey #1: 41 respondents
Walking Tour #1: 11 people
Verbal Map Feedback via Info Sessions & Drop-In Design Workshop: ~70 people
MURAL LOCATION PRIORITIES – via Location Survey #1
It is most important that the mural location provide opportunities for:
% represents from total respondents to question, not total Location Survey respondents.
LOCATIONS SUGGESTED -- via survey or verbal feedback
45% of Location Survey #1 respondents suggested a site. Many suggested general locations such as “greenbelt or park”.
Valencia & Almeria intersection; Hacienda Park; Cul-de-Sac on Valencia (West End), Valencia at brown belt crossing, Hacienda at brown belt crossing; Pamplona; Cul-de-Sac on Hacienda Avenue (South End); Alvarado & Anderson Traffic Circle; Seville and Barcelona intersection; Antelope and Quail intersection; Quail crosswalk at greenbelt; Caribou Place; Anderson crossing at greenbelt;
Basketball Court, path behind Pajaro Condos/near Bianco Court; Large cement pathway south of Atria Covell Gardens; Small icon at each street intersection with greenbelt, culminating in central location (like puzzle); pathway intersection near Caribou Court; pathway intersection near Lightpost 42, NE of Dominos; pathway between lawns near Dominos; pathway between Impala and Elk Courts.
Many additional location suggestions were outside the physical limits of the grant (e.g. Farmer’s Market, Marketplace shopping center, Falcon Court). These locations are not all listed here because they are outside the geographic limits of our funding.
About 50% of Location Survey #1 respondents included a concern about location. Most concerns expressed opinions about a specific site or street location, although 14% of respondents had a general objection to a mural at any location.
Locations Not Feasible*:
(as determined by residents during Walking Tour, Drop-In Design Workshops and via Creative Action Team meetings.
Locations Semi Feasible – as secondary sites only
Based on all location feedback, the Creative Action Team chose these locations as 3 main location choices for the mural
Option A: Pedestrian Pathway North of Atria Covell Gardens
Option B: Hacienda Avenue Cul-de-sac near greenbelt
Option C: Blue / Spiderman Park near Eagle Place
These locations were chosen because of resident support, connectivity, surface quality, safety concerns, access, and ease of logistical planning. They each could easily connect to larger greenbelt pathways to create an art walk.
These locations may be possible for smaller artistic pieces depending on to-be-determined factors, including: main mural location, resident support, public works input, fundraising, skilled labor availability, and more.
Antelope and Quail intersection; sidewalk at Antelope Alley (aka Halloween/Pumpkin Alley); Pathway Icon on Greenbelt near Bianco Court and Chautauqua Apartments; Brown Belt Crossing at Valencia Ave; Brown Belt Crossing at Hacienda Ave; Crosswalk at Quail Ave connecting to greenbelt – between Gazelle and Caribou Places;; Pathway between Impala and Elk Places
The final location will be chosen via paper Location Survey #2.
The survey has only 6 questions, but you must visit the locations in person order to vote. It is difficult to understand the locations (advantages, disadvantages) without visiting them in person.
THE MOST FUN WAY to complete the survey is to show up IN PERSON for Walking Tour #2 on Sunday, June 9 at 10 am.
We will meet at the lawn near the Dominos. The Survey will also be posted here online on June 8, 7 pm for download. You can request a paper copy delivered to your house by calling a Creative Action Team volunteer: Meg 203-464-2484, Juliette 530-902-8407, or Jenny 530-574-2483.

Sadly, I can't lead tonight's session, as I've caught a stomach bug. In addition to being weak, I really don't want to give it to any of you all. So I'll have to reschedule (bummer!). Since the workshops are sequential (each building on the previous), this Sunday's event will be the brainstorming session, and next week will be Design and Draw.
This means for the next two weeks, the public workshop schedule will be:
Design Workshop #1 -- Brainstorm Sunday June 3, 3–5 pm
Dos Pinos Community Room, 2550 Sycamore
Location Walking Tour #2 -- Vote Saturday June 9, 10 am
Meet at Dominos sculpture in Greenbelt
Design Workshop #2 -- Design & Draw Sunday June 10, 3-5 pm
Atria Covell Garden (Location Tentative)
Thanks for your patience and flexibility.
