Danbury Fair and Ben's Bells Team Up for Community Art Initiative

The Danbury Fair together with Ben's Bells have announced a community art initiative "Building Kindness, One Step at a Time"

What does Kindness look like in your community? 

Danbury Fair and Ben’s Bells Project are teaming up for a special art project to reflect what kindness means in our communities – And we need your help!

We are calling on all Kind People in the greater Danbury area to submit a drawing to reflect what kindness in your community looks like. 25 drawings will be selected to be made into custom mosaic Ben’s Bells stepping stones.  These stepping stones will be displayed at the Danbury Fair and the event will conclude with an auction of the stepping stones in support of Ben’s Bells Project.

This community connecting event is free to the public. So we encourage you, regardless of age or artistic ability, to participate. Prizes will be awarded to selected participants.

  • Ben’s Bells will create each stepping stone March 23rd - May 8th from the selected drawings.
