the project

We are painting a large-scale mural on the Oceanside building in Benson. This mural will act as an "entryway" to the neighborhood providing many benefits to pedestrians and drivers alike! This is a perfect location for a beautiful addition to the neighborhood. The existing mural is in need of some care, and we're here to help!

why we're doing it

Murals provide many benefits to a neighborhood's health. There have been studies conducted that show that murals make spaces safer and less vandalism/litter occurs. Aside from making the neighborhood enjoyable, we hope to engage the community by hosting three public events. We are also providing a paid opportunity for local artists to give back to their city.
