The Rangeley Friends of the Arts welcomed all ages to take part in the Community Art Project in June. The RFA provided anyone interested in participating with a 24″x 24″ board to decorate with paints or other media, with each square expressing their idea of “happiness.”

Thirty-six entries have been on display in the walkway between the RFA Lakeside Theater and Blue Flame on Main Street and will remain on display through September. The public was invited to vote for their favorites as a fundraiser.
