Invite neighborhood children & their friends
to create a permanent public artwork in your community.
The Children’s Community Art Monument provides
a unique opportunity for children to build a lasting
testament to spirit and creativity in your hometown.
Most communities have memorials to wars and historic
figures, but how many have a powerful symbol of
hope for the future - especially one created by
the children of the community?
Children across the community are gathered together
to create the Children's Community Monument. The
children, under the supervision of Art Street
artists, create their own artwork in a 12"
x 12" square of colored concrete. When the
red yellow and blue concrete squares dry, our
artists and masons set them permanently in a giant
quilt pattern in a location in the heart of the
community – a school, a park, a library
