Newburgh Heights Association, in participation with Newburgh Illuminated 2014 is sponsoring the “Art Banner Block Party" in celebration of the "Heights Banners Beautification Project."
Our children’s vision of a beautiful community will be featured on full-color banners installed on 19 Utility poles on Liberty Street in the Heights District from Benkard to Bay View Terrace.
The project, conducted during a series of workshops with the children living in the Heights, was carried out under the guidance of professional art educators. The creative artwork will not only add color to the street but will also convey important messages to the community; messages relating to social topics, such as good health habits, the importance of neighborhood safety and aesthetics.
Come Meet the Children and Enjoy the Festivities:
Date and Time: June 21, 2014, 1 – 4pm
Place: Liberty Street, between Courtney Avenue and Overlook Place
