Celebrating Highland Community Art in June

Last summer FoHA artists designed and supervised activities around Highland Park, creating colorfully painted panels  with a nature theme. At Pool House Rock,  we  will get our first look at these vibrant panels installed on the exterior doors and windows of the Pool House, creating an Outdoor Exhibition of Highland Community Art.
