Call to Artists
Turners Falls RiverCulture is requesting proposals from artists/designers to design a crosswalk at the main intersection in downtown Turners Falls. The crosswalk will be painted on the street using leftover paint the town cannot use in its current street sprayer. Current colors on hand are white, yellow and blue. If the artist chooses to use additional or other colors, they will have to be purchased separately by the artist using award money. There is the opportunity for the artist to sketch out the design on the street and work with RiverCulture on enlisting volunteers to help paint the design. Info details here. http://www.turnersfa...items/lisadavol.html

Do friends call you “beefy,” or “burly?” Are you the girl or guy they call when they need to move something heavy?
Are you employed in the construction industry? Or do people think you are?
Do you regularly wear hard hats? Are you told you look good in them?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then we want YOU to model in our fashion show.

A fund-raiser for RiverCulture. Featuring custom-designed wearable hard hat art from local artists.
Saturday, June 25
7pm cocktails, silent auction, fashion show, dance party
The Shea Theater
Turners Falls, MA

We’re also looking for area sponsors. Interested models and sponsors call 413-230-9910 or email
