Last summer, Literary Lots brought food-inspired children’s books to life in one of Ohio City’s underused urban spaces. For two weeks, kids were encouraged to read, write, create, and play within the transformed lot as various organizations (including Art House) led both literature and art related (free!) programming.
Literary Lots will return this July/August to transform Novak Park! The space and programming will reflect the new theme of ocean/water inspired children’s literature. Plans are in the works to construct a squid slide, a coral reef maze, and a “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” inspired submarine. The hope is to fill this submarine with audiobooks so kids can enter, relax, and listen.
Art House will team up with Literary Lots once again to organize art projects based around this year’s ocean theme. Programs, designed and led by three talented artists, will include printmaking, ceramics, and 3D mixed-media projects. Stay tuned for more details!
