Last night I got to get my hands dirty and do something good. I was able to participate in the Values Project. The Values Project is a new, public art project in Napa, CA that stimulates dialogue and thought by stenciling basic human values in unexpected places in the public sphere: in front of parking spaces in parking lots.
Peter Hassen is the genius behind the project.
“The Values Project is good for Napa because it is a high-profile, low-cost and feel-good positive message project.”Peter Hassen, Artist
I met Peter and his lovely wife, Louisa, at an ARTONF1RST event a couple months ago. When I heard about what he was doing, I knew I had to be a part of it. Last night we painted 7 words in an elementary school parking lot:
Patience, Kindness, Charity, Tolerance, Courage, Community, Respect
