#PXVRocks

An Ode to Phoenixville

What Is #PXVRocks?

At its most basic, #PXVRocks is an ode to Phoenixville - the history, the people, and the friendly and welcoming culture that brings us all together. The project was adapted from the 901Rocks! project out of Memphis, Tennessee and was brought to Phoenixville by our team at Ann’s Heart

This project seeks to celebrate the recent success and growth of the Phoenixville area. And who better to spread that love than the businesses, organizations, foundations, and associations that strive to make PXV a better place to live! When we set out on the mission to bring these individuals together, we had no idea how positive the response would be and were humbled by the outpouring of support. The event took place at The HEART where participants gathered to paint, socialize, and share why #PXVRocks to them.

"What a blast! I wanted to keep painting more rocks." - C.P.

We think that this event will be something that Phoenixville residents look forward to year after year and hope that you enjoyed this interactive art project.

Phoenixville, thanks for being so awesome. And thank you to everyone who participates and proves, every day, why #PXVRocks.

 

I Found a Rock, Now What?

Finders Keepers! If you love the rock you've found, keep it! Just remember to tag it and its creator on social media, and be sure to post why YOU think #PXVRocks.

You can also find a new hiding place for it so that another person can enjoy it. Or if you want to get creative, find a rock, paint it and hide it for others to find. You can use THIS LABEL TEMPLATE to tag your rock and keep the #PXVRocks project going.

Thank you to our Sponsors
