Mills Lawn recently welcomed to its campus a new piece of public art to be used as an innovative teaching tool.
Village Council members discussed the first draft of its first ever public art policy at their meeting Monday, Nov. 5. The policy, drafted by Village Manager Laura Curliss, covers the principles and procedures the Village will use to accept both permanent and temporary installations of art in Village-owned spaces.
Yellow Springs police officer Brian Carlson designed a monument in Fairborn to honor the victims of the 9/11 attack.
When Yellow Springers celebrated Pride weekend last month, many honored the occasion by attaching colorful bands of yarn and felt around trees and light poles downtown. So it came as a shock when some villagers noticed this month that someone had been cutting down the art.
Clowns and families alike swarmed Dayton Street for face painting, henna tattoos, food, music, acrobatics, fire dance, hula hooping and more.
Saturday’s public art forum at the First Presbyterian Church was a celebration of the arts in Yellow Springs, along with a brainstorming session on ways to enhance the arts community and what role, if any, local government should play.
Village Council members and local artists and arts supporters this week began a dialogue on the arts and a potential Village government arts policy at Council’s regular May 21 meeting.
The air was filled with anticipation, the lawn filled with students Wednesday afternoon, May 23, as Mills Lawn School emptied for the ceremonial unveiling of the new school sign.
The fifth-grade art students dove into the buckets of pottery shards in muted shades of blue, pink, orange and brown.
Wendy Shelton’s fourth- and fifth-grade students gathered outside late Thursday morning to begin work on the new Mills Lawn School front lawn sign.
