 Have you seen our current project yet?

We are working with the Arkansas Department of Corrections - Luxora to bring beauty to abandoned buildings. Many talented artists end up on the wrong side of the law. Through a cooperative effort between our local community, who donate un-used paint, our local property owners, who want to beautify their under-used buildings, and the ADC we bring you a gallery of artistic expression. Currently the residents of the Luxora facility are working on the Old First Baptist church building.

With over 128 broken windows, there is plenty of opportunity to display art projects. We currenlty have thirteen works of art on display and hope to have this building complete by the end of the year.

Drive by 513 N. Carthon, Osceola, AR to watch the progress.
