It was a fun morning creating art in Miller Park. We had a great turnout of Yalecrest children and everyone was very excited. We started at the Miller Park entrance on 900 South and was met by Lynn Pershing, the Chair of The Yalecrest Neighborhood Council and a very knowledgeable Red Butte Garden Volunteer. She took everyone on a guided walk through the park and talked about the wildlife, birds, plants and trees as well as the bubbling stream. Everyone then proceeded down to the Bonneville Glen where the children created a canvas related to the sights and sounds of Miller Park. The art that the children created is going to be assembled into a large frame to make one cohesive mosaic of art and will be displayed at the Miller Park Grand Re-Opening Celebration on August 27 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm. Please join us in this celebration of Miller Park and to see the beautiful art that the children created. Thank you to everyone who attended – this was a great show of community spirit.
