Mapping out the next steps for their vision of a local arts and culture park, their first post-Guggenheim event is a “Holiday Wrap-Up” this Saturday, Dec 10, from 2pm – 5pm.

Plans include showcasing ideas formed from various brainstorming sessions over the summer, along with a chalk game on the new paved park grounds where people can write down their favorite ideas for the future of the park.

The event is open to everybody, and the rain date will be the next day, Sunday, December 11.
