Paint a Picket
Whether young or old, professional or doodler, pick up a picket from Petaluma Arts Center for a minimum donation of $5.00 or $20 for a business to advertise.
You have probably seen the cyclone fence at the edge of the Depot parking lot. It’s going to be here for a while, as staging area for the new SMART train. You can help make that fence into a work of art!
Paint a fence picket and see it up on our cyclone fence along with Jackie Yurth’s colorful recycled vinyl flowers. Pickets are lightly sanded and primed on one side. Paint them at home, bring them back, and we will add them to our very own ART FENCE.
Board member Tracy Gentry, her son Alex and Jackie launched the Fence Project at the Rivertown Revival and it is a huge hit.
