North Rosedale Park Civic Association (NRPCA) “went live” on August 7, to raise the remaining match for a $76,000 Knight Arts Challenge Grant to fund a 25-foot metal sculpture by celebrated artist Charles McGee on the grounds of the Community House, and a large tile mosaic by master muralist Hubert Massey on the façade of Cooke STEM Academy, the neighborhood school. Both are along the new 5-mile NeighborWay walkway connecting the Grandmont Rosedale Communities.
Here’s where you come in! Visit our crowd funding site – www.patronicity.com/greatart – to learn more about the project and out great donor gifts. We only have until September 30, 2017 to meet our $20,000 fundraising goal. We’re already half way there, but we need you to take us across the finish line.
