Lyons Place is new apartment building in Dayton for low income and homeless veterans. The Fine Art Center (TFAC) member Lucille Carroll and her husband had visited this new facility and presented TFAC members with the idea of providing Lyons Place some artwork to hang on the new walls. She asked TFAC members for donations and collected 35 pieces of art from the members for Lyons Place. Last Thursday the art works were hung on the walls and the residents were excited to see the beautiful art in their facility. It helped make the three story facility feel a little more like home for the residents. More art will be added in the future. Thanks go to Lucille and TFAC members for helping care for our vets!!
