Local artist John Golightly is offering the public an opportunity to help in the creation of public art by hosting four blacksmithing workshops for residents of the Normal Station neighborhood.

The workshops give neighbors the opportunity to play a major part in enhancing their community, and will give them the chance to become a blacksmith for a day as the help construct five scenic panels that were designed by Golightly.

Anyone who is interested in participating can contact the UrbanArt Commission at 901.525.0880.

The Black Bayou Fence project is a City of Memphis Percent-for-Art project, administered by the UrbanArt Commission.
