The Red Thread Network for the arts is happy to let you know that we are raising funds for a community Mural at 373 Main Street in West Springfield near the Alice Corson Playground. It will be painted by local artist John Matlock, with a theme of local landscapes, in the spring of 2021.  Since the annual fund raiser for RTN, Yuletree Jubilee, will not be held this year, the group will ask donors to participate in the fund drive for the mural. Any amount will be welcome and all donors will be listed on the group’s Facebook page and website.  Celebrated Patrons of the Arts ($500.00 or more) will have their names listed on the mural wall.

Our heart-felt thanks to our Celebrated Patrons of the Arts for their generous donation to our community mural.
