As reported on the front page of the October 30th edition of the Fayette County Record, the La Grange City Council has approved Arts for Rural Texas to begin a city beautification project involving the painting of local fire hydrants.
The program will allow local businesses to sponsor fire hydrants near their locations, as well as take part in the concept and design for their selected hydrant. Local artists, ranging from established professionals to school-aged children and youth organizations, will be selected to do the paintings.
ARTS' vision for this endeavor is to strengthen community pride and collaboration through the arts and creativity. ARTS will begin the program in the first weeks of January 2021.
Contact ARTS to learn more about this and other community projects, and to find out how you or your group can get involved.
