Thank you to Alder Abby Roth for sharing this information… please check out the TWO public art projects listed below!




We are finally ready to paint!:

On Saturday/Sunday May 1 & 2 we will prime the walls and on Saturday/Sunday, May 15 & 16 we will fill in the outline that our terrific local artists (Alex and Annika) will sketch out post-priming. (I am guessing we’ll end up tacking on a few extra painting days for final touches!) This article shows some of the images for the mural.

We need lots of volunteers and no artistic skills are needed. Kids are very welcome to help!

This is the link to the volunteer sign-up sheet. We have to limit the number of people per shift due to COVID restrictions, but you’ll see there are lots of shifts throughout the day each day.

Just let me know if you have any questions. And a giant thanks to John Martin for all his amazing organizing work on this project!


The creative crosswalk painting at Chapel and State Streets and Chapel and Union Avenue that is part of the Intersection to Connection project is scheduled for April 24-25 weekend. (This project won’t use lots of volunteers for safety reasons, since the painting is in the intersection and only one lane will be closed to traffic at a time.)
