Paint day is almost here -- only 1 day before we begin drawing the design.
We still need helpers to set up and wash the street Friday morning and to greet volunteers throughout the weekend. It's not to late to sign up to paint -- or to lend a hand to children, elders, or other folks who need some extra love to participate. You can signup to volunteer here.
Just want to check it out? The best day to view the finished mural is Sunday Oct 14 (while the road is still closed) or anytime the following weeks. You can find us at Hacienda Ave in Davis, where it meets the greenbelt. There is a map linked here.
Still want to paint? We often have neighbors drop-in to paint, without advance sign-ups, and we will try to accommodate you if we can -- please BYO Brush if at all possible -- and understand that there may/may not be a job available right when you arrive.
Speaking of brushes -- as we aim to cover a few unexpected costs -- you can still donate to support the project here.
Two days out from painting -- I'm reminded of the generosity of our community, local businesses, and our government agencies in supporting this project. Over 100 individuals have donated (online or in person), and many more have given generously of their time -- several today, as I gave a last minute call out for people to help pressure wash & prep the site.
So here's some thank yous for all those who've made it possible -- first, to the people in our neighborhood, for sharing their time, ideas, energy, and endless support.
Second, to the government agencies that made this mural a possibility -- and gave the neighborhood the opportunity to spend time dreaming with me. Thank you!
Thanks to the businesses who have supported this project with their financial sponsorship. We appreciate your help making this dream a reality!
And finally, to the many kind organizations who've given us a helping hand -- either with in-kind donations or professional assistance. Thank you!
