Creative Crosswalks in Lewiston!
Started by LA Arts and 9 months in the making several individuals and groups came together to make this happen. Alan Manion came to consult on the project and met with Melanie Therrien, Misty Parker, Sheri Hollenbeck and Tyson Pease to help make this project happen. With the approval of city council and the work of our awesome Public Works department to get it painted Mr. Simmones now has some cool art in front of his iconic hot dog business.
Look out for more creative crosswalks!
