  • Franklinton East-West Collaborative: Call for Proposals – July 1st – We’re creatively addressing the elephant in the room: that there’s a clear divide between east and west Franklinton. This is a call to artists, especially those working in east Franklinton: we’re interested in seeing your ideas for public art projects that work collaboratively with west Franklinton residents.

More to be updated soon. Keep checking back all next week!
