Youth are invited to paint and make public art on benches: two dates Wednesday, Feb. 21 and Saturday, March 2nd

Unity House’s Domestic Violence Services Team are inviting youth ages 10-17 years to join staff in designing and painting new community benches. The benches are to be public seating in the green spaces adjacent to the Kathryn Allen Center for Domestic Violence Services, located at 6 102nd Street in Lansingburgh.

The Arts Center of the Capital Region made this program possible through the Statewide Community Regrant Program, funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
