the project

The Frayser mural project seeks to bring beauty to a neighborhood full of blight.

the steps

We already have permission from landlord on the large concrete retaining wall that will be the canvas for the painting/mural.

First, we will finalize the mural design and get approval from both the landlord and MLK high school (the wall, although not affiliated with the school, is directly across from the school on Dellwood)

Next, we will clean and prepare the wall for paint.

The next step will be to paint the mural, involving the community and local art students.

Lastly, we will properly seal the painting to protect from natural elements and vandalism.

why we're doing it

As a resident of Frayser, I desire to see the neighborhood improve in appearance and safety.  I believe people are highly affected through beauty around them; thus, a colorful painting can bring positive vibes to a blighted community.  I also believe in the power of art to be interpreted many different ways, bringing together a diverse group of people.


DISBURSEMENT BUDGET (as of 4.15.16):

Our revised budget for the $960 is for it to all go to the local professional artist who will be painting the mural. We have received supplies and help with paint from people who didn't give money but wanted to help out.
