NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | St. Paul’s Iris Park to become a “Creation Station”


Are you a living, breathing human being? Do you have any ideas for anything that might conceivably be regarded as art? Can you get yourself to Iris Park on University Avenue on September 22?

If the answers to those questions are yes, yes, and yes, you’ll find yourself welcomed with open arms and “fully stocked art stations” by Rachel Petrie, Margot Olsen, and Jessica Gunzburger. What kind of art are we talking about? Well, the types of art you will be able to create include—but are not limited to—”mosaics, music, knitting, painting, drawing, performance, storytelling, beading, poetry, and puppetry.”

The project is sponsored by Irrigate, an initiative to brighten the Central Corridor with community-created art. Making art doesn’t get any easier than this, Central Corridor community, so crêpe diem.

Correction 9/14/12: When initially published, this article incorrectly stated that Irrigate is federally-funded. In fact, the initiative is funded by private foundations. 

Coverage of issues and events affecting Central Corridor communities is funded in part by a grant from the Central Corridor Funders Collaborative.
