On May 10, 2013, five local artists received a total of $7,200 from Playhouse Arts as part of the Creamery District’s Creative Placemaking Initiative. The projects were selected by a committee made up of community members, Mary Lou Bertollini of the Art Center, Libby Maynard of the Ink People Center for the Arts, Holly Hosterman of Holly Yashi, Lisa Finigan, property owner of the Creamery Building and Jacqueline Dandeneau of Playhouse Arts. Artists Malia Penhall, Susan Bloch, Tim Gray, Robert Pabst, and Lori Goodman created their art in time for the Creamery Festival on August 23-25, 2013.
