Pop-Up Public Art
Pittsboro PARKS has organized several pop-up, spontaneous art projects done at low or no cost to add some vibrancy to our artistic town.
Pittsboro's Page Vernon Park needed a little more life this winter, so French Connections was kind enough to let Pittsboro PARKS borrow their resident dinosaur, for free, to spark interest, discussion and add some fun.

Here it is trying to blend into the crowd, somewhat successfully:
The next project, a public street piano, was the idea of Angela Crisp-Sears, who had seen street pianos in other cities. She even donated a piano to the Town for this purpose. Samantha Birchard of Pittsboro Toys recommended local artist Barbara Hengstenberg of WildesArt, who was excited about painting the piano pro bono. It was moved today to its temporary home in front of Pittsboro Toys.
