Project: Inviting Creative Play and Reading
Submitted by: Sarah Worley
UPDATE Fall 2017: Sarah has recently gained permission from the Weis Market and the Huntingdon Borough to work on her project. She is also working with a Juniata Studio Arts Students and Faculty to develop the mural. Sarah has received enough materials to build the Little Free Library and plans to install not only one at Weaver Park but a second LFL at the Huntingdon Community Food Garden!
Sarah Proposed to create a public mural project around the concrete platform in Weaver Park behind the Huntingdon Weis Market and paint it to look like a stage in order to invite dramatic and creative play in that space where children are already. The second part of the project is to build a “Little Free Library” in that same park to encourage and invite reading to children on the benches and the acting out of stories on the stage.
