Community art project March 18, 25.


Acclaimed Milton painter Deanna Sirlin is inviting the community to help with a new series of collage installations to be shown throughout Milton this fall.

The celebrated painter will hold two open houses Sunday, March 18 and 25 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Bethwell Community Center in which anyone over 8 can contribute work to the project.

Sirlin is asking residents to bring scissors, paintbrushes, and colorful recyclable paper of any size and texture as donations for the project and use them to express themselves. She will take the resulting collages back to her studio and make drawings from them.

When the art is shown this fall, everyone who contributed to the project will be invited to the opening reception as a collaborator.

This project is funded through the Better Together: Real Communities - Milton Mini-Grant Initiative. The grants are intended to support projects and activities that engage residents to improve and bring communities together.

Please register for the open houses by e-mail at . For more information on Sirlin, visit . For more information on this project and the mini-grants program, contact Grant Coordinator Amanda Quintana at 678-242-2512 or .
