This story of Norwood’s response to the 1918-1920 influenza pandemic is particularly illuminating given our experiences with the Covid-19 pandemic. What have we learned from history? Join us for this online discussion as we learn from history and find ways to chart a better path forward today.

On Saturday, May 21, Friends of the Visual Arts of Norwood will host a community art-making event specifically about yard art at the Norwood Civic Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Yard art is described as decorations to display in its courtyard and windows as well as on the porch and doors. This event is your chance to learn more about garden art, brainstorm ideas, pick up supplies, or create something for your garden art display.

The first 25 groups to arrive will receive free garden art kits. For more information, contact [email protected]

You can attend this event to learn how to add curb appeal to your own property or more specifically to get ideas for entering the Norwood’s Yard Art Competition, taking place June 11-12.
