The following information was provided by the YardArt organizers:
Push back against this dreary winter by creating something in your yard, porch or doorway – a structure, an art project, a contraption, or anything that pops to mind.
Delight, surprise, inspire, and amuse yourself and your neighbors!
Anyone can participate–no fees and no age requirement. Your creation
should be family friendly and viewable from the street or sidewalk. Your
project will be listed on the YardArt map and you’ll receive a yard sign
to mark your location.
Plan to have your project up and ready for viewing by March 5, 2021. The townwide “exhibit” will remain up until April 2, 2021 for COVID-safe
