“Funding and support for Dublin Arts Council’s popular Riverboxes project has been generously provided by a grant from The Dublin Foundation, which also supported the creation of the original Riverbox series. These small works of public art have been placed in Dublin parks with access to the Scioto River, and have been a treasured addition to our community. The project promotes family experiences, exploration of art and history and the opportunity for active engagement with spaces that members of our community may not otherwise discover. Dublin Arts Council thanks The Dublin Foundation for recognizing the value of this project, and for generously supporting the arts in our community.”
