Goldfish Art Grant Project

I am announcing the origami Goldfish Art project, granted by the Maynard, MA Cultural Council with many elements to complete by August 2018.

It will include a 6 panel mural, each illustrating a verse of the origami Goldfish Song! The words to the song will be painted on the murals. Adhered in an environmentally freely manner, copper butterflies will surround the words on the panels (Call 1). Audio versions of the song will be put on our YouTube channel (Call 2). Between May and July 2018 the murals will be painted. Then there will be a reception in August 2018, date TDB.
