Across from the Carbondale Park & Ride, a large arch has been raised above the bike path. For the next month the arch will be “blooming” with unique pieces created by nearly 50 different local artists. To hear more about the project, Raleigh Burleigh biked over to The Roaring Forge to talk with metal workers and project leaders Olivia Pevec and Joe Burleigh.
