Crosswalk art to bring added color to downtown area

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – Downtown Aberdeen is about to get some added color.

A new project will take place this summer.

Brodie Mueller of Dakota Territory Brewing Company talked about the event.

Carly Pochop of Colorful Creations said this is a less expensive way to add flavor to the downtown area.

Mueller said that artists will not get paid nor will they have to pay for the supplies to produce the crosswalks.

Artists will complete one half of the crosswalk on one day and then finish it the next to avoid halting traffic, according to Pochop.

Mueller said that the theme is Northeast Pride and that ideas will be accepted from throughout the region.

The deadline is fast approaching. Pochop said that with schools put on temporary hiatus, it may give individuals some time to get started.
