Hope moves forward with 'Art Quilt' initiative

In conjunction with Hope’s new beautification efforts, several individuals, businesses, and organizations are hoping to add color to the community through a new “Art Quilt” initiative.

Our news gathering partners at the "Hope Star-Journal" report that the first quilt, a gift from Hope Town Manager Melina Fox, went up last week on the Hope Civic Center / Hope Star-Journal building. The art quilt was created by Missy Porter, of Greensburg.

Fox is awaiting a second art quilt created by Porter to arrive any day. It will be placed on the nearby Hope Town Hall. “It’s designed using the official color palette we have chosen for the Town of Hope,” she added. The period colors were selected to fit the historic nature of the town square. “Everyone is free to pick colors based on their own preferences. Our desire is to encourage creativity and still maintain a cohesive look around the Hope Town Square.”

Classes are being formed for residents wanting to create their own smaller art quilts.

The "Town of Quilts" concept will be used in Hope tourism materials and social media campaigns.
