So…the blog has been quiet the last two weeks as I grade like mad for the end of the semester. For the most part, I keep this blog running only during the school year, but I like to end it each time with something fun to unwind with. I think this next post qualifies for sure!
People are invited to participate in the creation of new murals during the City of Sacramento’s community mural paint days.
The free events are part of the City’s Office of Arts and Culture pilot “Community Murals Sacramento” program, which selected 39 local artists to create 10 community-based murals across the city.
“We are thrilled that the Community Murals Sacramento program has been so successful in brining the community together to bring these murals to life,” said Donald Gensler, the City’s public art project manager. “We encourage all community members to come help us paint the last four murals at these family-friendly events.”
The events will feature live music, food, vendors and an opportunity to help paint a mural. No art experience is necessary, and all supplies will be provided.
The some of them have already passed, but there’s one on
- Broadway: May 29 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
- Hagginwood Community Center: Date in June to be announced shortly
- you can check out other deadlines/locations at the registration below
Funded by the City’s General Fund, the mural program is part of the City’s “Creative Edge” plan to bring art and culture to all Sacramento neighborhoods and communities.
Those interested in attending can register online here.
It’d also make a great photo opportunity!
