Woven: Ramona Park

August’s Flint Public Art Parade brings us to the winding streets around Ramona Park in historic Metawanene Hills neighborhood, featuring a large-scale fabric piece hanging from the eaves of Cook School created by Montana-native Amanda Browder in collaboration with area textile artists Ariel Sammone, Ash Arder, and Gregory Hatch, and alongside Metawanene Hills Neighborhood Association co-chairs Wendy Johnson and Bill Hammond. Mod Tie Etiquette jazzes up the scene with live music, following a walk led by thundering Nightfire Drumline and a neighborhood hangout hosted by great DJ Tomas Tello.
