OFFCenter Fun at RT66Summerfest

Ron and D’Ana helping families make art together

Thanks to all those who helped make the RT66Summerfest Community Art Project fun for all the families who participated! Art Educator Topher House volunteered to manage the project and helped families build and decorate paper towers out of old newspapers. (Thank you Jo Tabacchi for coming up with the activity!) OFFCenter’s Executive Director, Ron Breen and Board President Margaret Lopez and Board Member D’Ana Alderate were there to make it a success on the streets!

Thanks also to the volunteers and interns who helped prepare for the project. This was truly an event where art making = community. Unfortunately the weather cancelled the second half of building — but now we have leftovers to keep building art together in the Community Art section (alongside the Giant Coloring Books) at the 9th Annual “We Art the People!” Folk Art Festival this Sept. 11th!
