Join us in gold leafing the project centerpiece September 9th-11th at Garden Street Plaza, downtown Visalia

We are excited about the participatory component of the project. Caroline Koontzs MJ Eastes- with Arts Visalia and the consortium has been working hard with growers to find a variety of regional fruits and vegetables to be gifted to the community project’s centerpiece. We have constructed a tiered platform to support the produce which will be gold leafed on site by festival visitors and ourselves. Not to worry! The process isn’t too challenging, but may not be ideal for children. That is o.k. though, because we need their young talent as well to make the project a success. Children of Visalia and surrounding areas are invited to draw additional portraits, or decorate citrus. We envision the end result to be an eye full of glittering delight.
