Bring your imagination and recycled materials!
I am excited to hear that “New Your City” will reurn to the Fox Point Community Library!Â In 2007, artist Jean Cozzens and Ann Schattle led the exciting building projectÂ “New Your City.” Children, schools, community groups, and adults from across the state came to participate in the creation of a city made from recycling materials.
After the success of the first city, the Anne Shattle the Children’s Specialist wanted to bring the ccoperative building project back to the library. This April in collaboration with Mary Geisser, a local artist and teacher, the city will make its return to the Fox Point Community.
Bring your recycled objects, cardboard, ribbon, beads, string, egg cartons, plastic containers, and bring them on down to the library.Â The project is open to children, adults, and families of all ages.Â The library will also be scheduling special times for school and group visits!
Together everyone will be creating a city from junk and found objects that will be on display in the library. From sky scrapers to rocket ships the only limit is your imagination.Â All workshops are free to the public!Â On Tuesday, April 26 from 5-7pm there will be a closing celebration complete with food, music, and our finished city!
