Beaver Dam, KY

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2022

Description: As part of a wider efforts to revitalize Beaver Dam's downtown, this project created public art out of old wooden doors. Each artwork pays tribute to the city's history and culture. Volunteers mounted the colorful doors on buildings throughout the central business district.

Dixon, KY

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2021

Project Category: Public space activation

Description: Webster County Senior Center has delivered meals to homebound older adults for years. But the center has never fully used its large outdoor greenspace and patio. To make the space more appealing, the center created an outdoor seating area with benches, tables and games, which allow visitors to dine outdoors and make social connections. Today, residents use the space for bingo and board games between meals, and the patio hosts community events.
