CRYP Seeks Funding for ‘Waniyetu Wowapi’ Art Park
An innovative, exciting new space for creative expression and artistic freedom is taking shape at the Cheyenne River Youth Project® campus on East Lincoln Street in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. The 25-year-old, not-for-profit youth organization is building a community art park, which it plans to formally dedicate on Monday, September 15. Located adjacent to CRYP’s Cokata Wiconi (“Center of Life” in Lakota) teen center, the new art park will be a safe outdoor space for self-expression through graffiti art and traditional painting. It will benefit those who create artwork within its borders, but it also will benefit those who choose to visit the ever-changing walls of art. Those interested in making a contribution can sponsor a section of the art park by making a tax-deductible donation. Those funds will be used to purchase materials for building the art structures. Online donations can be made here. . For more information, call the CRYP headquarters at (605) 964-8200. See the full release here.
