City of Lakewood Print
2020 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
This grant will engage local volunteers to install a series of innovative art projects, including a ground mural, along 40 West ArtLine and help connect older adults to transit, parks, shopping and dining.
To safely bring the community together during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Lakewood asked artists and entertainers to create outdoor activities for children as well as residents of a senior living compound. Among the attractions was "Project Joy Bomb," an event during which the performers (including the pictured bubble artist) meandered along the ArtLine, a four-mile walking and biking route located in the city's arts district. More than 400 people lined the streets to engage. Hundreds of others watched from their vehicles or home porches and balconies.
