In celebration of the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County’s decision to share “Love Birds,” an award-winning sculpture by local artist Chicho Lorenzo, the Shops at Stonefield retail center is hosting a community-wide social media event from the Stonefield Green to showcase the art installation. The contest begins Thursday, October 1st and extends through the month. Participants are encouraged to take “selfies” near “Love Birds” and post them on Facebook and Instagram with #lovestonefield. Winning entries will be selected and prizes awarded each week through the month.
