It's been a long year and in times like these we can all benefit from an uplifting message! Lucky for us, Merchantville School's National Junior Honor Society wants to better our outlook on life through their "Kindness Rocks Project" - spreading positivity and good cheer across town in the simplest way! This project runs from February 14th - March 14th and everyone is invited and encouraged to participate. 3 easy steps: 1) Collect some rocks from your yard or anywhere outside, 2) decorate them with inspirational or motivational messages using paint, markers, stickers or whatever you think of then, 3) place them around town to brighten peoples' day. Kindness rocks, colored with motivational thoughts and left in random places for others to find, will bring a smile to whoever is lucky enough to come across it. Please share this idea with family and friends.
“A New View” is all about envisioning a future for the city, with art playing a central role in reinforcing Camden as a place for creativity and innovation", says Camden Mayor Frank Moran. The City of Camden, Cooper's Ferry Partnership, and Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts welcome applications from visual and performing artists with a track record of demonstrating their ability to work at a scale commensurate with outdoor sites, using materials, spaces and time in a transformative way to reinforce the perception of the city as a place of creative possibility. Local artists are encouraged to apply, especially those who have had experience with meaningful community engagement in the creation or interpretation of artwork. Six sites in Camden will be transformed by public art. Grant funding will be used to support the temporary installations as well as programming throughout the end of the project in October 2020.
