Sharon Byrne is having a great time discovering how much fun urban renewal projects can be. She’s presently engaged in raising the profile of Santa Barbara’s Eastside, first by making it safe, then turning it into a national Neighborhood-of-the-Year winner. She’s discovered an incredible community of people that love working on their neighborhood, and have pulled together to do amazing things in it. Tonight, you’re going to see one of the most ambitious projects this tremendous Eastside team has ever attempted: Yes We Can – a project to turn our public trash cans from blight into art, using the talents of our children and the strength of our youth arts programs.
