Downtown Iowa City's benches are getting facelifts throughout the summer.
Saturday the first two benches in the Downtown Iowa City's BenchMark's project were painted.
Organizers say BenchMarks is meant to bring together Iowa City's diverse community through street art.
A group of local artists are inviting creative volunteers to help paint more than 100 public benches.
Volunteers can join in for public painting demonstrations during Iowa Arts Fest (June 1 – 3), Iowa City Jazz Festival (June 29 – July 1), Sand in the City (August 10 – 12) and the Northside Oktoberfest (October 6).
