Community Canvas-Mosaic Project
Bring your entire family to the Morrisson-Reeves Library on May 30th from 10am-3pm to paint your 12”x12” canvas. This art piece will go on display at the Center City Innovation Center, Morrisson-Reeves Library, Grassroots ARC, Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce and RDNA Studio-Gallery.

ABOUT THE PROJECT - The concept behind the Community Canvas Mosaic Project, is to raise awareness of the visual arts by reaching out to the local community and encouraging participation from individuals of all ages and abilities, also to raise morale and excitement about our great community. The Project will be displayed in a community facility in conjunction with RDNA Art & Design Studio-Gallery and Grassroots Resource Action Center along with local sponsors. This project consist of 50 12-inch by 12-inch works of art that collectively create a large-scale canvas mosaic 5’ high x 10’ wide that reads, “For the Love of Richmond, Indiana”.

For the 2015 Project, RDNA Art & Design Studio-Gallery will team up with the Grassroots Resource Action Center Community Initiative project to provide a free, 12-inch by 12-inch canvas for any family or individual who is interested in participating.
