RIVERDALE — Keep Riverdale Beautiful recently unveiled three new pieces of artwork at the city’s Town Center and City Hall.
Three statues feature children reading or playing, “which speaks to our future — the children of our community,” said Janai Kearney, KRB director.
A fourth piece of artwork, a mural, is located on Church Street.
The artwork was funded with a $50,000 Community Development Block Grant from the Clayton County Community Development HUD Programs Division.
“It is our hope that these statues will not only add beauty to the exterior of our state-of-the-art building, but that they will encourage and inspire all who gaze upon them,” Kearney said.
