Bidding has begun for Marengo’s Summer Art Project.
Original artwork has been featured on 20 bags game sets in front of Marengo businesses throughout the summer. Bags is a bean bag toss game similar to horseshoes.
Previous Summer Art Projects have included custom-made barn quilts, rain barrels and adirondack chairs, each covered in original artwork.
Marengo Main Street is auctioning off the games through a silent auction to benefit the organization. Bidding for all sets begins at $80, and each has a “buy it now” price of $300.
Bidding can be done in person at Flatlander Market, 125 S. State St., or online at www.marengomainstreet.org. Bidding closes at 5 p.m. Aug. 29.
For information, call the Marengo Main Street office at 815-568-8440.
