Calling all artists! Lehighton needs your help bringing spring-themed art to downtown storefront windows.
Lehighton's Main Street Steering Committee is looking for artists to paint things like flowers, birds, butterflies and other springtime themes on downtown windows. It's part of a contest to raise people's spirits and elevate the downtown area. Organizers want people to take pride in the town.
"The beautiful artwork speaks for itself, but it's more the community spirit that people want to do something to revitalize our downtown. Make it feel a little bit more friendly to people that want to walk our downtown."
Paintings must be completed by April 10th and will stay up until the 17th when they are judged. The top three winners will receive 50 dollars too. Anyone interested in beautifying downtown windows can sign up at Jenny's Sweets & More or email mainstreetlehightonborough.com. Paint and supplies will be provided to those who need it.
