Last Friday, our Cake Eaters turned in 20 birdhouses for the Birdhouse Challenge. This particular challenge was simple: create a work of art inspired by the theme birdhouse, to be used in a Downtown Treasure Hunt.
All of the birdhouses will be featured in Saline's downtown businesses during the month of February as a part of the Flying February Downtown Treasure Hunt, an annual collaboration between the Saline Downtown Merchants Association and Two Twelve Arts Center. This is the third annual scavenger hunt, with last year's search featuring Mouse Houses, and the prior year's featuring Fairy Doors. During this month-long search, the public has the opportunity to find all of the birdhouses and mark them off on a playing card by collecting a stamp at each birdhouse location. After finding all of the birdhouses, playing cards can be turned in at any participating business for a chance to win a lovely gift basket compliments of Saline's downtown businesses.
The birdhouses will be moved to the Saline District Library in March.
All of our artists created such wonderful, unique, and inspiring birdhouses. Don't miss your opportunity to see the birdhouses and qualify to enter the gift basket drawing.
