People tell me we need a map -- to show where the mural will go, what is funded, and what is not. So here you go!
Thanks to the digital artists who worked on bringing this map to life: Nik Joshi for combining the map and mural design and Josiah Lopez, for better defining the dragon's face based on workshop feedback.
The cherry at the top of our mural sundae, so to speak, is a mini-mural at Spider Park. This site would only get painted if we get fully funded, as it requires another skilled artist assistant to supervise a crew of volunteer painters. This site was ranked just below Hacienda Ave in our location survey, but some neighbors feel very passionate about it, as a spot where people often stop and chat -- and a site where the northern section of the neighborhood crosses paths, and where elders could be attracted into a space currently most inviting for children.
The design for this site is based on kid's drawings from our 5 day long Drop-in Design workshop -- where heaps of kids drew treehouses. It would feature creatures from the sidewalk Elemental design, repeated here (lizard, sunflower, turkey). It leaves space for kids to add to the mural with their sidewalk chalk drawings.
As you can see, this idea is still kinda rough and needs some finessing -- which I will do very happily, once I'm more certain we'll have enough money to paint it!
The magic of crowdfunding is... a lot of tiny donations add up to a WHOLE LOT of money.
So please help us turn our mural dreams into reality -- Donate Today!
