Palisadians donated painted and decorated wood blocks to be auctioned off at an event to raise funds for the Brentwood Art Center—a nonprofit community art center. Students at the center, including children, adults and veterans, crafted more than 140  4”x4” wood blocks into “incredible and unique works of art” to support the veterans art and scholarship programs.
