Rock Springs Main Street/URA to install Kindness Rock Garden



             The Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency (URA) is working with local teacher Deborah Burback and Family Vision Clinic to install a Kindness Rock Garden in Downtown Rock Springs.

            Near the beginning of August, Burback set up shop at the Main Street Market with several pounds of rocks and paints for kids and adults alike to add their art to the Garden. She then set up at Bunning Park for the entire Artember event hosted by the Rock Springs Main Street/URA and Community Fine Arts Center (CFAC) to offer another opportunity for the rock painting.

            When asked about the potential impact of this project Burback lamented, “People who don't usually have time to do crafts - or didn't know how good of an artist they really are - can explore those hidden talents with a community Kindness Rock Garden while spreading short messages of ‘Be Kind’, ‘Be Happy’, ‘Smile’, ‘Joy’, and ‘Friends’.”

            URA Board Chairwoman Maria Mortensen and her husband Heath then spent several hours on a sunny day cleaning up the little landscaped area at the front of the Family Vision Clinic 544 Broadway Street) that they’ve donated to house the new Kindness Rock Garden.

            “This is just the beginning,” said Mortensen. “We encourage individuals to come down – both young and old – to add a rock to the garden! Then you may take one someone else painted in return.”
