That was great idea to introduce event in Aurora such as the Art for the Park. Little splatter of fresh colors on the picnic tables makes the park even more inviting.

So this will be the second year now for this event. The other day I looked around at the town’s website and they noted: ‘The Town of Aurora’s Parks & Recreation Services Department invites all Aurora high school students and community groups to participate in our first ever Art for the Park event happening during the spring of 2012.

The first ever Art for the Park. No, no I have the proof from 2011, it is not the first – but second. I went back today and the statement was corrected. However, more was added.

The interesting part was the Why? part – promoting a sense of pride, providing an opportunity to showcase the talent of up-and-coming community artist, promoting public art, contributing to the beautification of our parks, and decreasing vandalism within our parks.

The last one, to decrease vandalism within our parks. Never really thought of that. The issue I have with this statement – one may interpret this event as promoting graffiti in the park.

After all it is encouraging event for the Aurora youth and great service from the Town of Aurora.

The Parks Department will supply all required picnic table boards. The boards will be pre-sanded and will also be pre-drilled for assembly. Tables consist of 3 table top boards and two bench boards. All boards are 6 feet in length by 10 inches wide. When ready for submission, the Parks Department will pick up the picnic table and will coat it with an outdoor sealant to ensure the art withstands the elements.

Well, last year 2011 picnic tables will be gone so I thought I showcase some of the tables before the 2012 event. Here are couple more designs I posted before.

I wonder how the park looks from the birds view.

I am living in Aurora and this is my photo journal blog. A picture says 1000 words - but not always, so I write. You don't have to travel 1000 miles to find a treasure - all I have to do is zoom through my lens and I will find it for you here in Aurora.
