GIRL NOTICED is a Nationwide charcoal mural project aimed at bringing attention and awareness to the important role “the female” plays in our society. With our large expressive murals, and powerful message, we hope to empower women and help girls recognize their VALUE. 

We have traveled to 7 states so far in the past year completing murals, noticing girls, and bringing communities together through workshops and gatherings. But we need your help to keep us moving!

Charcoal? Won’t that come off the wall? Yes! That’s the point! There is a window of time to “notice” the girl before she may fade away or change. Murals have also been done in paint with the intention to be painted over or replaced after 1 year. The murals are intended to be temporary with a permanent message. Help us spread our message and notice women and girls everywhere!

Why I am doing this project.

At the age of 7, I was a fearless, jump from the highest step, climb the biggest tree, scraped knees, no one messes with me kind of kid. I’m not exactly sure when it happened, but looking back I can understand why. Why this wide eyed hopeful, full of spirit and guts kid all of a sudden was afraid of everything. I suppose it was because the steps I used to jump from also led to the house where I never quite felt good enough. My accomplishments seemed insignificant and my dreams were dismissed. It happened when suddenly my changing body brought attention that was neither asked for nor wanted and left me feeling ashamed and small. I was a lucky one, because although these things had held me back, making me doubt myself, finding myself in situations where I was influenced too easily in an attempt to find the acceptance I was so desperately seeking, my spirit never completely died. I was a lucky one because a handful of special people in my life recognized my thoughts and dreams and validated my ideas, and believed in me, so my hope stayed alive. Not all girls are so lucky. Some will have their spirit and hope ripped from them at an early age, never to realize their full potential. Others it will happen later in life, maybe when they’ve reached an age where their bodies begin to change again and their value and self worth is dismissed now by a society and its demands on being young and perfect, one that demands you look and act a specific way all at an attempt to fit into an impossible mold. They may never have the people in their life that took the time to notice, or they may not have the spirit and hope left to celebrate their 7 year old self. It’s time we give these women a voice, because everyday a girl or woman is left unnoticed, is a day too long.

Risks and challenges

This project has been underway for over a year, and needs funding to continue. I see no unforeseen risks if money can be raised to allow us to continue.
