Here's a reminder note for the Art in the Garden design meeting on Monday, July 11, from 7:00 - 8:30 PM at 9528 Dayton Ave.
Check out the Community Garden Fence conceptual sketch on the Yahoogroup site files folder. We've come up with some fun ideas linking the garden to the Interuban trolley history and bike path present. Come to the meeting, share your thoughts and ideas, and help to actually fabricate the metal art pieces.
On Monday, we will work in Ian's garage workshop off the alley that runs north-south between 95th and 97th and between Evanston and Dayton Avenues. Ian's house is located about a third of the way up from 95th, on the west (Dayton Ave) side and is the only backyard with two basketball hoops and a soccer goal. If you drive, you can park off the alley.

> Community volunteers are invited to help design and fabricate artwork that will be integrated into the community garden that is being built in Greenwood Park this summer. This is a unique opportunity to work side by side with a professional artist to make your vision a reality and learn the craft of metal working.
> A local sculptor, Kim David Hall (www.kimdavidhall.com), has volunteered to help add artistic elements to the Greenwood Park Community Garden. The Fremont Avenue side of the garden will include a low concrete wall (to support raised garden beds) with a metal fence on top. We will attach metallic art pieces onto the fence and construct an archway entrance into the garden. Through two design meetings we have developed the attached conceptual drawing of the fence and entryway (see attachments). The art pieces draw on the Interurban as a creative theme linking the historical trolley line with the current bike route. This theme represents the Greenwood neighborhood and ties into other artistic and interpretive elements in the existing park.
> Join us on Monday, July 11, from 78:30pm at 9538 Dayton Ave to help us draft full scale sketches of the art pieces.
> Later in July and August, you can join Kim David Hall in his professional studio on South Lake Union on the metal work to fabricate the art pieces.
> Please RSVP if you are interested in this art-party!
