Neighborhood Markers: Unity in the Community 

Creating Community through the Arts

Over the next several months artists, educators, and students from Old Dominion University will be working with the community and school district of Young Terrace to conceive, design, and install a community mural. All are invited to participate in the project in any capacity and at any stage of the process. This mural will be located at CHKD Thrift Store (719 Monticello Avenue, Norfolk, VA).

From conception to execution, educators, children from Young Terrace, and ODU students will be involved in the design, development, and artistic implementation of the project. Neighborhood Markers’ collaborative mural will express a positive and uplifting message. Our hope is to create a collective vision through an investigation into the assets of the community. Everyone will have a voice, as artists, students, children, and community member’s ideas will be integrated into the mural’s final design.

Because of the high level of participation that we have seen during past projects, your business will receive a good deal of attention. Hundreds of individuals, young and old, from every part of the community will come together to support this undertaking. The wall will be transformed, inspiring a sense of pride and place in those who view it long after the painting sessions have concluded and the mural is installed. 

The successful completion of this mural will require a great deal of work and the participation of many individuals, as well as a total estimated budget of $25,000, which includes various forms of in-kind support. We are currently pursuing sponsors of all types (financial, supplies, installation, artist fees, volunteers, food, musicians, etc.) and are hoping that you and your business will consider supporting this worthwhile project that will build community, empower the participants, and create ownership and pride in the mural. Furthermore, the mural will be a bright and beautiful public artwork that will beautify the downtown area for many decades to come, making the NEON District a more attractive place for people to visit and stay.

You can support “Neighborhood Markers” community mural project at a variety of funding levels. For more information and to help paint the mural contact

Risks and challenges

The main challenge for this project is to secure funding by April 2nd so we may complete the painting and installation of the mural. The time line is very tight but the students are currently working hard to generate ideas from the community. If we keep getting the support we need then this project will happen within the time constraints. Your help is needed!
