NORTH ADAMS -- Art About Town will coordinate the creation of an enormous painting on the surface of Holden Street, between Main Street and Route 2, on Thursday, Aug. 30, from 4 to 8 p.m.
The public is invited to participate in the second "HoldenStArt Project," which features the painting of a 2000-square-foot work of "Op Art" (short for "optical illusion") using vivid colors and non-toxic, environmentally-friendly paint. Participants must be at least 5 years of age and are encouraged to wear shoes and clothing that they won’t mind getting splattered with paint. Volunteer artists will use chalk to mark off the areas to be painted, while others will be on hand to register participants, pass out paint and brushes, and supervise the painting. To participate, contact ArtAboutTown firstname.lastname@example.org
