The Parkview High School Art Department is excited to present an innovative project aimed at enhancing the community, enriching the artistic experience of our students, and fostering a sense of pride and ownership in the Springfield Skate Park. We are seeking funding to commission the talented artist, Rebekah Polly, to collaborate with our students in designing and painting an 8ft x 115ft mural at the Springfield Skate Park. This project will not only serve as a vibrant work of art but also as a testament to the power of collaboration and community engagement.
