Families take time to enjoy a display of multi-functional outdoor seating on the sidewalks and parking spaces in front of the MSU Idea Shop. In a partnership between the Idea Shop and MSU's Fred Carl Jr. Small Town Center, outdoor seating was designed and fabricated, serving as an example that can be used to enhance and draw people to downtown areas, parks and even educational settings. The Starkville community was invited to come experience the area during an end of the school year celebration last week. For additional photos from the event, click here.
