Couple gets more than $100,000 for Bernd Park upgrades
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Alexis Gregg and Tanner Coleman are ready to give a local park a face lift.
“We’re just so glad to be in a community like this, that embraces the arts,” Gregg said.
Alexis Gregg and Tanner Coleman are the owners of AnT Scultpure. They have plans to build sculptures that kids can play with at Bernd Park. The goal is to encourage kids to use their imagination.
“We love playable art, that’s kind of our niche, that’s sort of the work we really love to make…to create sculpture that invites the community to engage physically with,” Gregg said.
Alex Leahy, the Program Officer for the Community Foundation of Central Georgia, said she loves Gregg and Coleman’s project idea.
“They want to see a park that’s not used become used. They want to use the brick sculptures and I think that’s fantastic that individuals want to get involved in making the city better,” Leahy said.
She said there is about 1.5 million dollars left for the next three rounds of the Downtown Challenge. Leahy said if you have an idea, apply.
“It’s not about telling you what your idea should be and how things should be. It’s about the community telling us about how they think the community should be,” she said.
Gregg said she is excited to see her daughter play at the park one day.
