At the One Stop Café, Food And Service Program
31901 Tri-County Way, American Job Center Salisbury, MD 21804
Telamon Corporation, a provider of workforce and career services, will host Tim Gibson and his Ten Thousand Flower Project at our Food And Service Program training Cafe on Tuesday, December 17th, 2019, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The event is open to the public, and all are invited to attend and assist with creating the public art piece.
The Ten Thousand Flowers Project is headed by lifelong artist, Tim Gibson. Tim’s vision is to bring communities together to create one giant mural stretching over a mile long, filled with ten thousand colorful flowers. To make it even more unique, this massive mural will be split into hundreds of interconnecting parts like a giant jigsaw puzzle and created in over one hundred communities across the US from Florida to Alaska. And the best part; each mural will be painted by dozens of local volunteers from each of those communities. (tenthousandproject.com)
