If you have been around the Sherman Neighborhood lately you may have noticed some new yard art! The new additions are a product of the City of Madison Neighborhood Grant Program and have come to be called the Sherman Art Project. The art was created by neighborhood residents with the assistance of Alexis London, the artist, and the yard art team.
The Sherman Art Project has received positive reviews so far and has served as a way to bring neighbors together. Projects like these demonstrate the importance of placemaking, providing an opportunity to bring residents together and build community.
The Sherman Neighborhood is holding a potluck and yard art celebration Sunday, August 23rd from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm at the Northside TownCenter to share photographs of the art being created as well as information on a self-guided walking tour of the pieces.
