New art program lets kindness rock Clarksville

Clarksville Arts and Heritage Development CouncilClarksville, TN – Clarksville‘s children, along with a fair number of adults, are adding to the city’s public art inventory—one rock at a time.

And they are engaging in random acts of kindness as they offer others the joy of a chance rock discovery.

In a trend that is sweeping the nation, Clarksvillians are painting rocks—big rocks, little rocks, smooth rocks, backyard rocks—and hiding them around town for others to find, keep, re-hide, or substitute with a painted rock of their own.

Rita Arancibia, founder of Arts for Hearts, is harnessing this movement in that organization’s Clarksville Kindness Rocks project to promote random acts of kindness using art as a creative way to touch people.

Clarksville’s Finest recently joined the Clarksville Kindness Rocks program sponsored by Arts for Hearts, a program under the umbrella of Clarksville-Montgomery County Arts and Heritage Development Council.

September 7, 2016

September is National Hunger Action Month

Empty Bowls ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – In America we tend to think of hunger as a minimal problem. But, it is estimated one in six Americans – and one in five children in the U.S. – are dealing with a very real hunger problem. Nearly 15 percent of Americans live in food insecure households, where a lack of money and/or resources means there isn’t consistent access to quality food and nutrition.

September is National Hunger Action Month; nationwide people are asked to take action to fight hunger in their communities. Hunger Action Month offers an opportunity to share your time, talent and resources to impact your local food pantries and soup kitchens to help feed Clarksville-Montgomery County Residents who struggle every day.
