As the winner of the “Play Everywhere Design Challenge,” run by KABOOM! and supported by the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, the Springville Center for the Arts will be building the Arts Mini-Park. The Arts Mini-Park is a 10 by 100 foot shaded space positioned between the arts center building and Franklin Street that will utilize a meandering path that will encourage passersby to veer off the sidewalk, take a moment to pause, and discover play and art elements targeting preschoolers through third-graders and accompany them with features or amenities for older children or adults.
They are looking for volunteers to help in all aspects of the project: planning, installing and creating the unique pieces that will become our Arts Mini-Park, including Arts Mini-Park Committee – plan and choose the interactive play elements, propose the final design; Junior Designers – Elementary students who will brainstorm and give input for the design; and Installers and gardeners – help on the big day!
They are also interested in hiring Artisans and Craftspeople (local metalsmiths, welders, woodworkers, masons and more) to create the interactive play elements.
Call 716.592.9038 or email [email protected] in you are interested.
