Work Continues on Recycled Art Project!

The Prentice Village Voice staff is still hard at work on the art project that will beautify their lunchroom! Today we added spray-painted orange bottlecaps around the “MMS” letters. Next week, we will fill in the rest of the space. Thanks again to everyone who has donated materials and time to this project!
