During the spring of 2015, AVA’s Linocut and a Public Art Project class collaborated to create and donate a printmaking project to the Spark! Community Center. Natalia Callaghan, Edward English, Gwendolen Gensler, Bonita Libby, Todd Renninger, and Josh Yunger worked together to cut, ink and print two 24” x 36” prints of their building in the former Lebanon Junior High School.
Located at 75 Bank Street in Lebanon, the Spark! Community Center provides adults with special needs a valuable resource to positively affect all aspects of life. Many participants in AVA’s Art Lab program—our weekly art program for adults with special needs—are also active within the Spark! community, and the delightful relationships that have grown through the intersection of these two programs inspired this most recent public art project.
