Local artist supports rainbow crosswalk fundraiser

Momentum is growing in Creston for the upcoming rainbow crosswalk barbecue fundraiser hosted by Creston’s LGBTQ+ organization OUTspoken on July 27 in Cenntenial Park from 12-4 p.m.

Local artist and studio owner Beth Swalwell will be showing her support at the fundraiser with an art station sponsored by the Art Barn Studio.

“I love rainbows. I love the idea of colour. It just feels right. And if one person feels understood or accepted because of a rainbow crosswalk, then let’s put them everywhere!” said Swalwell. “People can make a rainbow flag or a rainbow ribbon. The art stations are by donation with proceeds going to OUTspoken for the rainbow crosswalk.”

Highlights of the community fundraiser include guest speakers, live outdoor jam session, LGBTQ+ jeopardy game, and vegetarian options for the barbecue.
