We are in the process of a unique community art project: a collaborative mural on the retaining wall of the Edible School Yard, facing Lindsey St. in downtown Greensboro. During April we started hosting a series of curbside conversations, collecting over 300 answers to the question, “What would make Greensboro a healthy city?” We are looking for common themes, from such a beautifully diverse audience, which the muralist Kathleen Kennedy is translating into a 40 ft mural. This project is inspired by Judy Baca’s “Great Wall of Los Angeles,” and the work of the Beehive Collective, combined with our belief and support in a healthier Greensboro.
This is a city wide participatory art project! After analyzing the responses gathered from our curbside conversations, Kathleen Kennedy will design and outline the mural on the wall. 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 $2000! We will be using your money to purchase the actual resources, from paint, primer, sealant, brushes, 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 interviewing people, helping to paint, fund-raise, or simply come to our kicking block party when the mural is completed , let us know and we can help plug you in!
