The first viaduct street art project was
done on the South Kickapoo Street on June 29 and 30. The Lincoln
Park District, the city of Lincoln and Chris Tice all partnered to
bring an idea to reality. I urge everyone to drive by and see this.
It was so appreciated by the neighborhood, and it is just an awesome
scene. Tice was the lead artist and we had a lot of wonderfully
talented volunteers. While we had volunteers who were very talented
artists, you don't need super talents to be a part of this project.
I can't draw a straight line and they found things for me to help
The next project will be on Friday and Saturday, July 12 and 13. We
will be at the viaduct on South College and First Street beginning
at 9 a.m. both days. If you can color between the lines, then you
have the ability it takes to be a volunteer! Many of the images that
are on the walls simply follow a stencil and then you fill them in.
Tice has an idea and a layout plan, so we invite the artist and the
artist want-to-be to come and be a part of it. There is no charge to
participate in this project.
Crime Scene Investigators. Lincoln Park District's best
canine friend, "Parker," has been stolen. And we need all the
detectives we can find. As a forensic scientist you hold the key to
discovering the culprit. The class will get you into the hands-on
world of forensics and crime solving as you build you own CSI crime
kit. You will evaluate fingerprints and collect evidence at the
scene of the crime. Your trained eye will determine who committed
this awful crime.

16, and running through Thursday, July 19. Investigators will work
from 6:30 to 8 each evening. Cost is $40 in district.
