Citizen Paint: Mission Accomplished
Thank you Citizens!
You have made it possible for this project to be fully funded! We applaud your commitment to community public art and engagement. We thank you deeply for your investment!
We have 24 hours left to raise any additional gifts and the generous PREMIUM PRIZE for two weeks at the Washington Writer's Retreat is still on the table. Any additional gifts or upgrades will be part of a drawing. We have had cost over-runs for completing the project (renting sturdier scaffolding, additional paint, longer hours), so any extra will really help.
At the moment, we are contemplating the Better Block Project festival scheduled for this weekend due to predictions of rain. If we postpone, the rain date is more likely to be May 5th. An update will be provided tomorrow after we consult the forecast and the oracle. We will let you know when you can Paint.
Check out Nehemiah on the scaffolding beginning the outline of the mural. The energy is awesome on the corner thanks to all our partners and supporters being present at a long neglected community site.
