ArtCentral: Celebrating our Community with Art

Have you noticed some of the cool things happening in town? ArtCentral has a couple of projects that are underway and it has been great to see the community get engaged, to hear the positive feedback, and to see Spearfish get excited about art in our community.

If you haven’t seen the painted crosswalks yet, ArtCentral recently painted artistic designs on the crosswalks at Grant and Canyon Streets. For three days, community volunteers and members of the ArtCentral committee worked to install semi-permanent art on the pavement. The community support for the project has been outstanding. Watch the Matthews Opera House Facebook page for updates on the next crosswalk painting project.

Thank you.
