the project

Hi everyone, Eileen and Garrett here.  In 2021, we had the privilege of painting 3 flower murals in our hometown of Old Brooklyn and now we are back to paint another one!  The business owner of C's Beverage has agreed to lend us his wall to paint an interactive mural.  The city of Cleveland is excited about it too, because they approved it right away.  So, what do you think?  Let's make Old Brooklyn Bloom, one more time!

the steps

Step 1: Design Mural - Complete

Step 2: Get Design Approved by the city and business owner - Complete

Step 3: Raise Funds - May-August 2024

Step 4: Prep Wall - August 15, 2024

Step 5: Paint Mural - September 1-27, 2024

Step 6: Enjoy Interactive Artwork - Forever!

why we're doing it

Why are we doing this?  Well, we think murals are pretty neat.  They provide a neighborhood with an identity and help slow traffic.  But, this specific mural will be something special, it will be interactive.  There is a ramp in the middle of the wall.  We intend guests to stand on this ramp and take pictures, making them look like they are floating in the middle of a floral forest.  How cool would that be?!

Why floral murals?  There are so many reasons!  Not to mention the obvious one being winter (I guess I just mentioned it) :)-  Our main reasoning is the slogan of our wonderful neighborhood as "a great place to grow" and what better to represent that than by painting flowers?  Here's a fun fact, did you know that Old Brooklyn is home to the largest community garden in all of Cuyahoga County?  It is, and it's less than a mile away!  So, what do you think?  How about you, help us make Old Brooklyn Bloom.
