The Redmond Arts Festival includes a guided community art project with featured artist, Sherri Gamble. "The Hand-Held Project" will be led by Gamble on Sunday, July 15th alongside the Redmond Police Department where attendees will be invited to join hands, make a mold, and then cast them in plaster. The result will be a living sculptural memory and physical representation of building trust within the community: to allow art access and connection for all.
The Featured Artist Community Art Project is a festival tradition, offering attendees the opportunity to experience the art-making process side by side with a working artist, as well as their fellow community members. All ages are welcome to join the fun.
