Town to Showcase Future Concepts in Pop-Up Art Exhibit
Following the recent completion of the Town of Manchester’s new Parks and Facilities Master Plan, organizers are moving into the next phase of communicating the plan to Manchester residents.
The first initiative is a pop-up art exhibit introducing the plan through stunning visuals accompanied by informational narratives held at Work_Space beginning Monday, October 25. The exhibit will open with lunchtime reception starting at 11:30 a.m. The Our Parks, Our Vision, Our Future exhibit will include a two dimensional tour of the following parks: Charter Oak Park (West), Mt. Nebo, Globe Hollow Swimming Area, Case Mountain, West Side Recreation Area, Northwest Park, Nike Site, Center Springs and Robertson Park as well as an extensive look at trail enhancements and connectivity throughout town. Those attending the exhibit will get an inside look at what our parks and recreation facilities can be as we consider the future.
This exhibit and final findings of the plan reflect the input of thousands of Manchester residents who participated during the engagement period of the planning process. Those attending the exhibit will receive an Our Parks, Our Future, Our Vision commemorative book which tells the story of the plan through imagery and words.
The pop-up art exhibit will run Monday, October 25- Friday October 29 and is open to the public. Work_Space is located at 901 Main Street. The exhibit will be open on Monday and Thursday, 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. and Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
