July 6 — Aluminum Pour at the Greene County 4-H Fairgrounds
B.E.S.T Project (Bringing Elementary Students Together) Join in the fun at the Greene County Fairgrounds. This Bi-Centennial project has been selected by the committee for Greene County. BEST is a project bringing history, storytelling, and art together. Students in grades one through five received a scratch block. They will then scratch a design into the block. When completed, volunteer staff from Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum will pour the blocks with aluminum and the cast aluminum pieces will be displayed as one big sculpture in the Greene County Community Event Center. The artwork will combine multiple images that overlap and represent the rich cultural and architectural highlights of Greene County.
