Spearfish Tests Out Artistic Crosswalks

The Spearfish City Council recently approved artistic crosswalk painting at three locations in the city, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The project was requested by Elizabeth Free, ArtCentral Manager at the Matthews Opera House and Art Center, is part of the 2016 Bush Foundation Community Innovation Grant. The three locations approved for painting will be used to informally gauge community interest and participation in public art.

The painted crosswalks will be located on Canyon Street near Spearfish City Park, the intersection of Grant and Canyon streets, and on the Black Hills State University campus. The timeline for completion of the crosswalk painting is dependent on the weather, but tentative plans indicate the project will be completed in June.
