Are you ready to showcase your artistic talents? Applications are now open for the Flossmoor Art Commission's Barrels of Hope project! Artists selected to participate will be notified at the end of April.
The Barrels of Hope project engages local art enthusiasts to paint whiskey barrels, donated by Flossmoor Station, with messages of hope and inspiration. Painted barrels will be displayed in Flossmoor from July to September and a live online auction will take place at the end! More details for the live auction to come!
The Public Art Commission previewed the program with six barrels in 2020 featuring local artists. Like Flossmoor’s statues and parks, the painted barrels were eye-catching pieces of art that help attract people to our beautiful community!
