The Greensboro Mural Project is in the process of it's second community collaborative mural on the retaining wall of the Interactive Resource Center, facing Washington St. in downtown Greensboro. During December we started hosting a series of curbside conversations, collecting over 100 answers to the question, “What makes home?” We are exploring common themes, from such a beautifully diverse audience, which the muralist Justin Poe is translating into a 60 ft mural. We are creating this mural in part to highlight the many forms that home can take, raise up the IRC, but also to help make Greensboro more homie!
This is a city wide participatory art project! After analyzing the responses gathered from our curbside conversations, Justin Poe is designing and bottom-lining the painting of the mural. Community members will be invited to color in the mural! Upon completion we will throw a kicking block party for everyone in the Greensboro community!
If you would like to help fund the project please contribute to our kickstarter goal of $3,000! We will be using your money to purchase the actual resources, from paint, primer, sealant, brushes,trays, and some snacks for our wonderful volunteers!
And if we go over our goal you will help insure that we will have the single greatest block-party in all of North Carolina!
If you can't contribute financially then consider helping by painting, fund-raising, or simply come to our kicking block-party when the mural is completed, let us know and we can help plug you in!
Risks and challenges
Potential Risks include:
Not having enough help, so please come and help paint the wall or else our muralist might gouge his eyes out!
If we don't have enough help it will make meeting our deadline much more difficult. So come paint!
We could accidentally use the silver paint that poisoned the Tin Man!
[We plan on using as much VOC free paint as possible, within our budget].
The Mayor of Greensboro not liking the design and tagging it at night.
An unforeseen meteor strike.
