WHAT’S THIS PROJECT ABOUT?
Pride of Place: People want to feel connected to and proud of their community, and want to
put their hand prints ON the community.
Community Engagement: This project is imagined to be a catalyst for healing in our
community. With the polarization from the past three years, this allows art to become a healing
moment for our residents and community.
Art/Building Beautification: Whether a building owner wants to share art, or needs something
‘covered up’ we want to showcase our community artists. Also, pieces may be really big for an entire
wall, or possibly smaller to go around a window, doorway, a smaller portion of a wall, or other unique
Tourism: Communities market their mural collections and bring tourist to their community…
We can too!
We have received a $40,000 Grant to support this project. Donations are being accepted now.
