the project

I've always felt the desire to connect people by celebrating our differences and The Tree of Life lends itself nicely to this concept.

Even though Sharpsburg is only a mile on the map, it's culture and history is huge and I would like to have the people of Sharpsburg celebrate their differences. This is what I hope to accomplish with the completion of The Kathleen Trew Swazuk Memorial Mural


the steps

Install a rain barrel system

Paint the rest of the Tree

Add a chart with all the symbolism

Add a plaque for Kathleen Trew Swazuk




why we're doing it

When we began the mural, we simply wanted to celebrate  our differences, but in light of the climate of diversity as of late, we feel it is our duty to help people understand how important it is to celebrate each other


Please join us as we venture into phase two of fundraising for the Sharpsburg community mural. We will hope to secure funds for a rain barrel system for our mural garden, supplies to complete the mural and a labor budget to cover two  experienced mural painters along with two experienced helpers. We will be kicking this off on May 22, 2021 at the Hitchhiker building in Sharpsburg, Pa.  from 10:00am to 2:00pm
