The Decatur Area Arts Council is hosting a new community art project for this holiday season, “Christmas Card Lane.” This is an outdoor exhibit/competition comprised of larger-than-life ‘cards’ created by local artists and groups based on the theme “Holiday Season Around the World.” The cards will be displayed in a downtown Decatur area (across from ADM Center) from November 24 to December 30, 2018. The community will be invited to vote for their favorite card design and prize money will be awarded to the top three designs. If you, your organization or business would like to create a card for display, CLICK HERE.  Slots are limited.
