This project was created to recognize the importance of our parks. Artists photographed visitors to the park, talked with them and incorporated their brief story into the plaques.
Plaque text: A company picnic brought Cally and Sarah Orme to George Washington Park on a Sunday in August, 1991. The day’s agenda: play, eat, and play some more. Sure, there were adult activities. But Cally and Sarah were mostly interested in the moonwalk the company had set up.
Yeah, it was a good day to be out of the valley heat. A good day to hang out with your sister.
The parks. They’re all about kinship.
