northLake community garden (nLcg) hosted an Art in the Garden Party on Monday, 2011[aug]23. The event was sponsored by Mansfield Art Center and north end community improvement collaborative (necic). The party was part of a larger project known as Mansfield Reassembled by Drew Rauschenberger, who is an intern at the Art Center.
As coordinator, designer, and major sponsor of the garden, i was approached by the Art Center and necic about including an art piece in the garden as part of an ongoing beautification, public art, and community awareness effort. The piece is going to be an assemblage of found objects from Mansfield, OHio and will be attached to the front of the larger of the two raised beds. There is also plans for a mural to be painted on the sides of the same bed. Pictures of the party can be found at the nLcg facebook page (see above link) and Architizer. There are links from the Architizer page to additional websites with pictures and an article by Holly Fackler for the News Journal.
I believe the mural is supposed to be started next week and i am not sure when the sculpture is going to be installed, but i will post pictures to Architizer and Facebook when i have them.
