We’ve all heard the expression, “When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade”…probably more times in this past year than we ever thought we would! But it is true…struggles and worries can bring with them new skills, hobbies, appreciations, interests, coping mechanisms, strengths and relationships!
Join Project Greenville–in person and online–as they explore all of these through art, photography, music and demonstrations at the group exhibit, “Lemonade”. Participating artists
