Butterfly Stroll: A Call to Artists

You are invited to celebrate spring with a butterfly sculpture or art piece in the medium of your choosing. The District will be selecting 15-20 artists to create beautiful art pieces to be displayed on Main Street on Saturday, 5/22 from 10am to 4pm. This installation will be a part of other special events taking place Downtown that day. Join us in celebrating the resilience and strength of our Downtown businesses as we leave winter behind and flutter into a brighter future!
