Local Rochester sculptor Olivia Kim, in partnership with Rochester Community Television, is creating fiberglass sculptures of Frederick Douglass that will be placed in historic areas meaningful to Douglass' life throughout Rochester for the "Discovering Douglass Walking Tour." (Find out more here: http://www.douglasstour.com)
This is part of a citywide celebration of Douglass' 200th anniversary of his birth. Three sculptures have already been been placed: at the Hochstein School of Music, No. 12 School, and at Washington Square Park.
Many have volunteered to help with the first set of 13 sculptures - and we are so grateful for your help! With the first batch still in process, Olivia has now received requests for additional sculptures that need to be produced!
We need your help! The work is doable, it is just the volume of tasks that requires so many hands. Optimally we could use 5-6 helpers steadily throughout the day. Please pass along this opportunity to family, friends, co-workers, and groups you are involved with!
No Previous Art Experience is Necessary!
Work Hours: 11am- 2am, Monday - Friday
Organizer - Megan Hilton
