Dogwood Arts, CYLK COZART and Genesis Rock Team Up to Beautify Knoxville
KNOXVILLE –- Actor/filmmaker Cylk Cozart, Genesis Rock, and Dogwood Arts have partnered to further beautify the Knoxville area by hosting the "Planting Seeds and Building Dreams" celebration at Knoxville College this week.
This community celebration is in honor of our youth and the Bazillion Blooms program, which is sponsored by Dogwood Arts. One thousand dogwood trees will be planted on the Knoxville College Campus and will represent one thousand students growing and blossoming at the college.
The purpose of the celebration is to encourage youth to dream and "bare good fruit" throughout their academic journey. In addition to encouraging young minds to dream, the celebration is an effort to support a Performing Arts Charter School, "The Dream Academy," co-created and spearheaded by Cylk Cozart, a native of Knoxville who has appeared in over 30 films and 20 television shows.
Dogwood Arts is working in partnership with Cozart, Genesis Rock, the City of Knoxville, local businesses, and community organizations to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the Knoxville area. The "Planting Seeds and Building Dreams" celebration will not only commemorate Dogwood Arts' mission to enhance the natural beauty of our region, but it will also commemorate the beauty of nurturing youth to dream, grow, and thrive throughout their life's journey here on earth.
Everyone is welcome to attend this special event at 901 Knoxville College Drive on Saturday, December 3, 2011, at 12 Noon.
