The Apothecary Art Gallery is a student run art gallery (created by the UTC Art Department) that is located in the MLK neighborhood. We weren’t sure what a “NeighborFloat” was, but once we figured it out, we were excited to provide them with a grant to purchase the needed materials to build it. It is literally a parade style float, that has since been designed and constructed by UTC students and neighborhood partners. The NeighborFloat project is an initiative designed create awareness and connections between the Apothecary Gallery and the MLK neighborhood. We can’t really think of a better way to create awareness and bring folks together than a parade!
