NEWS Art Camp change of location, Fourth Friday, April Children's Month, Art Show, Public Art

Here's some news for you all. Vera Mulder's new art show is now up and ready for viewing at Barnes and Noble of Grand Junction.  For those who go see and email her your comments, she does have art cards to hand out.  The show's title might give you a hint of what is hanging. "What was she thinking/"

April 26 is Fourth Friday in Fruita. Fruita Fourth Friday will be April 26. The suggestion was made to have everyone who dresses up as for prom or such, to get a discount on perhaps, food or beverages. The fat Tire Festival is also that weekend so there will be al kinds of excitement in Fruita. Amy Gibbs is showing at Cornerstone. Brondon, from Frame Works will be showing at Pablo's Pizza. Jan, from Frameworks will be showing at the Copper Kettle.

Public art is becoming a possibility in Fruita with a group collaboration on a found object - type sculpture to be created. The interactive piece on the corner of Aspen Street just across from Circle Park will be moving. It has been accused of noise.  Come to Fruita, where the fun and voices are found.

The ZOO Quest Organization has signed a MOU with the City of Fruita. This means they are very serious about getting that facility headed for reality. Any donations for this most worthwhile enterprise will be most appreciated. Contact the web site where you will see a contact for donating.
This project will result in a wonderful educational and fun place for the Valley to visit. The City of Fruita is happy to see this endeavor continue to grow.

The Month of April is Autism Month as well as Save the Children Month. Remember, our children are our most precious National Treasure.
