If you haven't already, take a walk through downtown Quincy and check out some of the AMAZING artwork now gracing the previously dull planters that line Maine Street.

A total of 52 planters were painted by local artists as part of a community beautification effort sponsored in part by The District, the Quincy Art Center, Midsummer Arts Faire, and the Great River Economic Development Foundation. In addition, our local Home Depot generously donated the paint and supplies.

On Friday, July 1, The District is hosting a special recognition ceremony to honor the various artists. The ceremony begins at 7:00 in the Quincy Art Center.

But in the meantime, check out some of these amazing transformations!
