There is an opportunity for the community to add to the mosaic mural that was recovered from the fire that will be added to the new arts center.
Individuals or groups can stop by the Kirksville Art Association Gallery, on Baltimore to create a piece to be added to the mural. Community members are asked to contact Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 660-665-0500 from 9:00am to noon, Monday through Thursday, to reserve their spot for making individual tiles or a collection of tiles if it is a community group.
Jeanne Scott-Zumwalt, local and well known pottery maker, will be overseeing the project while school students and community members make new tiles to add to those salvaged. If anyone is interested in volunteering to work alongside Zumwalt in helping others please contact Judy at email@example.com
