This is the opening weekend for the Make Someone's Day installation by Bethany Pelle, a People's Liberty Globe Grant winner. It's at People's Liberty's Over-the-Rhine/Findlay Market Globefront, 1805 Elm St.

She has set up a collaborative ceramics workshop where visitors can honor someone local by nominating them for a ceramic flower arrangement, create their own ceramic flowers, or learn how to become involved in such activities as Japanese flower arranging, still-life drawing, scent-making, edible flower tasting, ice cream/sorbet tasting and attending a floral cocktail workshop.

Pelle, an artist and educator from Newport, seeks to "leverage creativity, compassion and critical thinking through civic and social art projects to promote vibrant, deeply connected communities," People's Liberty says.

Her installation, which opened last night (Thursday, June 28), will be on view noon-8 p.m. Fridays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sundays and noon-6 p.m. Thursdays through.Aug. 12.  Special events will occur every Thursday from 6-9 p.m.
