Community Happiness Art Project: We want to know what makes St. Johns residents happy. We’re asking residents to paint their own canvas flags with a representation of what makes them happy. The canvas flags will be collected and displayed at neighborhood events and during the September Art Walk.

The next Art Constitutional will be Saturday, September 9th and will follow the similar format and will feature dance demonstrations, Irish music, a reggae band, and more.
