Darryle Royal Planters along Grand Avenue
Grand Avenue got a makeover of sorts last year on its stretch between Seventh and 15th avenues, and part of its redesign included adding 50-plus planters along the street. Currently, they're blank canvases. But not for long.
Grand Avenue Members Association (GAMA) has issued a call to local artists interested in giving the planters more character. GAMA has formed a subcommittee to select from any artists who express interest in the beautification process of the planters. The organization hopes to have all, or at least most, of the planters' artwork completed in time for Art Detour 2014, which runs March 8 and 9 this year.More »
