Progress Report for the New York State Pavilion Paint Project 2014

We wanted to exceed goal to finish the project, and we have, but there is still much to do so please continue to support the effort and spread the word... thank you!

We are all very excited at the response we had to the Open Gate Events at the Pavilion. The first one on April 22nd surprised many with the showing of support from thousands of visitors. The second one on May 18th also allowed thousands to show their support. It was an amazing Anniversary Celebration throughout the Park!
