Clarksville Kindness Rocks project

 

New art program lets kindness rock Clarksville

Clarksville Arts and Heritage Development CouncilClarksville, TN – Clarksville‘s children, along with a fair number of adults, are adding to the city’s public art inventory—one rock at a time.

And they are engaging in random acts of kindness as they offer others the joy of a chance rock discovery.

In a trend that is sweeping the nation, Clarksvillians are painting rocks—big rocks, little rocks, smooth rocks, backyard rocks—and hiding them around town for others to find, keep, re-hide, or substitute with a painted rock of their own.

Rita Arancibia, founder of Arts for Hearts, is harnessing this movement in that organization’s Clarksville Kindness Rocks project to promote random acts of kindness using art as a creative way to touch people.

Clarksville’s Finest recently joined the Clarksville Kindness Rocks program sponsored by Arts for Hearts, a program under the umbrella of Clarksville-Montgomery County Arts and Heritage Development Council.
