What a bittersweet last painting day. Thank you to all who came out today to say hi and help with the final touches. Mark your calendars for the Garfield Street Fair on August 16th and come celebrate the completion of the mural with us! We’ll keep you posted. Until then!
GREAT NEWS! The mural project was selected for a $1,500 Spark Grant through The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation to support documenting the project.
Shout out to Carly Brook for working diligently on the grant proposal, Sarah Kluesner from Franklin Pierce Youth First for her assistance in finalizing the grant application, Saiyare Refaei for interviewing for the grant and of course The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation!
After a week off, we were back painting detail work in the Parkland sunshine. We will be painting this week through Thursday.
WHS College Bound seniors brought the energy and some great help this past Friday. We made a lot of progress this past week and will be taking a break from community painting days until Monday, June 30th. See you then!
