On Thursday, May 28 the Atherton East Public Art Parade brought flowers, food and music to the Atherton East neighborhood. The Flint Public Art Project’s second parade of the season was led by the Nightfire Drumline, beginning at Atherton East Community Center and concluding at the Atherton Community Garden designed and planted by Flint artist Jay Rowland and other community members. Participants enjoyed food provided by Sweet Peaces Vegan Café and freshly sourced greens from Flint River Farm. A performance by Mama Sol & Tha N.U.T.S. created a fun and positive vibe. Every summer, Flint Public Art Project hosts six art parades in different Flint neighborhoods, helping to beautify the areas and unite the residents.
