In 2018, we invited Northern Kentucky
The NKY Picnic Table Project's goal was to bring people together through art and food.
The community's response was incredible.

Here's how it worked:
Buy a table
Over 70 "communities" (including cities, neighborhoods, families, churches, schools, clubs, and businesses) purchased a table for $500 ($400 for nonprofits). All the tables were delivered to a warehouse. Click here to see a poster of the completed tables.
We had several painting parties where folks came together to decorate their tables. Paint, refreshments and other supplies were provided. Click here to watch a table being painted and see photos from the painting parties.
On June 16, 2018, all the tables were lined up along the Purple People Bridge for a giant community picnic over the river! More than 600 people came together to share a meal (the main course was burgers and hot dogs donated by Glier's) and enjoy the original art on all the tables.
