Discover Arts in the Park?
Many parks and natural sites foster relationships between artists, educators and communities and create opportunities for dialogues that promote preservation and environmental protection.
We plan to foster inter-disciplinary activities that allow all to participate including youth with limited opportunities. We will offer creative individuals the space, solitude and community that enables them to reflect and engage their work through residency programs, workshops and community events.
There are eight historic buildings in Discovery Park that could serve our community and provide much needed collaborative spaces to teach, create, share, and inspire visitors to preserve these lands for future generations. These historic buildings are crumbling, and although recognized, both nationally and locally as historic landmarks, they have been left to decay.
Re-using and integrating the historic district into Discovery Park's activities will attract more citizens to enjoy the outdoors and to take an active part in the preservation of land and heritage.
