Do you love coloring books? We're talking about adult coloring books - you really can lose yourself in all the detail of a good coloring sheet. So what happens when you combine that love with the love of all things Utica?

Many Utica businesses, community organizations and artists have joined forces to bring you the Utica Love Coloring Book. Angela Johnson, owner of BB Designs, rounded up a talented bunch of local artists to create these Utica-inspired coloring sheets, and from some of the previews we've seen, it's going to be awesome.

The Bank of Utica, PJ Green, BB Designs and The Home Ownership Center are just some of the local businesses that helped make this book possible. It's filled with local landmarks and familiar sites. It's really a unique coming-together of local talent and leaders to create something that has people talking.

They're even having a book release party at the Home Ownership Center in Utica on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 from 5-7pm. There will be food, beverages, and of course coloring. You can meet some of the artists and get your chance to buy a copy of the book. You might even want to buy a couple - these coloring books can get addictive. And don't forget, they would make a great gift for out-of-town relatives and friends.

You can pre-order/buy a copy of the book at BB Designs website. You can also find out about the Launch Party and get tickets at their Facebook Event page.
