Sunflower Solidarity with Ukraine: Reply by June 30

The Downtown State College Improvement District is seeking local artists to paint the perimeter of participating retail store windows throughout downtown in an initiative and summer beautification project called “Sunflower Solidarity with Ukraine” to be installed by August 1 and remain on display through the entire month.

The art will accompany a downtown fundraising effort to support the Ukrainian people through the amazing work of the World Central Kitchen (WCK), providing hot nourishing meals to people in need.

Supplies will be provided and artists will be acknowledged for their work.

If you are interested in participating in this project, complete this interest form by June 30 and please direct any questions to downtown@downtownstatecollege.com.
