Painting Community

In the summer of 2016, Hands On Nashville partnered with Nashville Public Library, a local artist and Dollar General to paint a bright picture for our community.

Library directors at six branches worked closely with Nashville artist Kim Radford to develop their own customized, color-by-number design that reflects the spirit and history of their branch. Hands On Nashville organized and engaged Dollar General volunteers to complete the vision.

The artwork is now displayed at the Donelson, Edgehill, Edmondson Pike, Hadley Park, Inglewood, and Old Hickory Branches of the Nashville Public Library.

As NPL Director Kent Oliver said, the project is “rewarding because it combines volunteerism and art in a way that will benefit thousands of patrons and guests who visit Nashville Public Library in future months and years.”
