Benchmark 2019: July 19, 5-7pm, at Van Go. Benches will be on display thru Jul. 28th.
Van Go’s Benchmark provides a positive structure where teenagers are hired to work and learn for eight weeks during the summer. Each artist is paired with a client–a local business, non profit organization, or community member–to design and create a custom bench. Van Go’s Benchmark has become an integral part of the social service network in Lawrence, KS.
