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.
UPDATE Fall 2017: Sarah gained permission from the Weis Market and the Huntingdon Borough to work on her project. She worked with a Juniata Studio Arts student and faculty to develop and paint the mural. Sarah has enough materials to build the Little Free Library and has installed one at Weaver Park and a second LFL at the Huntingdon Community Food Garden!
