Kindness Rocks at Kennesaw Art in the Park

Kennesaw City Hall

With all the anger in the world, egged on and amplified by social media troll wars, it would do us all good to be kind to our neighbors, because kindness rocks!

The City of Kennesaw has a plan. The city’s Department of Parks & Recreation, in partnership with the Kennesaw Arts and Culture Commission (KACC), will hold a rock-painting event on Tuesday, July 6, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. as part of their Art in the Park series.

The event is entitled “Kindness Rocks.”

It will take place at Swift-Cantrell Park, located at 3140 Old 41 Highway.

The press release for the event contains more information which we’ve reprinted below:

KACC members will be onsite for participants to paint Kindness Rocks to place in the Rock Garden that will be at Swift-Cantrell Park. The Kindness Rocks Project started with a goal of connecting people and inspiring and empowering others to create a kinder world. Painted rocks will be left in the garden for those in the community to take when they need an uplifting message. Unpainted rocks will also be in the garden for community members to take home and paint and bring back. The idea is to take a rock and leave a rock.

This Art in the Park is a free, drop-in style event! The community is invited to stop by anytime between 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. to paint. All supplies will be provided.
