June 5th Rock Painting Community Event in Lakewood

On June 5th, World Environment Day, LandMark invites you to paint, hide, and find rocks in Lakewood's parks. The event has two parts: 

The Artists' Rocks
artists in Lakewood will be creating a special limited edition of rocks which they will hide near their artwork. Follow @lakewoodculturalcenter and @landmarkexhibit to get clues on where the rocks are hidden. If you find a rock, you can take it home (one artist rock per person). If you're unsure of who created your rock, check back here after June 5th to see images of the artists' rocks and match yours with the artist who created it!

If you post your finds on social media, use our hashtag #landmarkexhibit so we can see the lucky rock hounds!

Your Rocks
In addition to the artists' rocks, we invite you participate in the exhibit by collecting & painting your own set of rocks before June 5th. Then hide them near our LandMark sculptures on June 5th for others to enjoy and find! To honor World Environment Day, we recommend decorating rocks with images of nature and the environment. Get creative and express yourselves. We can't wait to see what you create!

If you post your creations on social media, use our hashtag #landmarkexhibit so we can see the results of your creativity!
