Lucas PRIDE set to creating a walking/driving tour map of Lucas Grassroots Art Sites with their Partners in PRIDE grant, and here is the wonderful result in the words of a member of the Lucas PRIDE community:
The purpose of the Walking/Driving Tour Map of Lucas Grassroots Art Sites Brochure project was to hire a map designer, print the maps, and provide a new tourist information area at the Bowl Plaza Public Restrooms. The Lucas PRIDE Committee worked with the Lucas Area Chamber of Commerce and the Grassroots Art Center to accomplish this project. Local artist, Erika Nelson designed the map and the Lucas Publishing Company ordered the printing of the maps.
The funds from the Partners in PRIDE Grant helped towards funding the cost of designing and then printing 5,000 brochures on better quality paper. Other sources of funding were private donations, the Lucas Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Russell County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
