Charlottesville Campers Create Mural on Free Speech Wall
This year's Storyline Project theme is "transit."
A Charlottesville summer
camp is encouraging children to explore the city and share their experiences
with the community.
Thursday, campers with the
Storyline Project created a mural on the free speech wall in downtown Charlottesville.
The program is a collaboration
of the Piedmont Council for the Arts (PCA), The Bridge Progressive
Arts Initiative, Charlottesville Parks & Recreation, the Thomas Jefferson
Center For the Protection of Free Speech, SiteWorks, Charlottesville Area
Transit, Neighborhood Development Services, and Community Bikes.
This year's theme is
"transit." Rising fourth through sixth graders will explore
this theme through three days of excursions on boats, bikes and buses.
"I like how we get to do
different stuff, like we rode bikes the other day and we got to ride on the CAT
bus to see different stuff, how they wash the buses and how they give gas and
how they fix it," said Quincy Edwards, a camper.
The Storyline Project
volunteers are compiling examples of the students' artwork and photos of the
kids' adventures. You can see the final product at an exhibit at CitySpace,
which kicks off with a reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on August 2.
