Public creates the art for Nelson picnic celebration

The Picnic Project is the idea of fiber artist Alison Heryer. Since May, Heryer has visited different areas of Kansas City each week encouraging the public to print, paint, splatter, write and express themselves on a 5-by-5 canvas blanket she supplies. On Sunday, the site was Washington Park.
