OCAH partners with United Way for Day of Caring

The Odessa Council for the Arts & Humanities has announced a partnership with the United Way of Odessa for a Day of Caring — Public Art cleaning project from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 8.
“As part of the public art initiative, we need to out into the city, look over the existing art and document its condition,” OCA& H Executive Director Randy Ham said. “While we’re doing that, we’d like to be able to do a cursory cleaning and waxing of any of the bronze pieces. When the United Way called us about assisting in this process, we jumped at the chance.” The project will focus mainly on the pieces at Noël Plaza and Memorial Plaza as teams of volunteers examine each piece for damage and wear, photograph each piece and clean as they go. As time permits, other pieces may also be visited and cleaned, a news release said.
Cleaning supplies are being donated by the Odessa Home Depot, who will also be providing a cleaning team. “April 8th is also Keep Odessa Beautiful’s Don’t Mess With Texas Trash Off,” Ham added. “We’re so happy to partner with KOB and their volunteers as well. It just goes to show there are many ways to clean up our community” For more information, call 432-337-1492.
