The Mural Machine is back to beautify another corner of our city and they need your help. The South Park Mural Painting is your chance to help transform an up-and-coming corridor from a graffiti-ridden eyesore to a beautiful mural that advertises the wonderful South Park community.
For those interested in attending the South Park Mural Painting, the event takes place June 17th at 10AM. The Mural Machine and volunteers will be gathering on Wayne Avenue, near Hickory Street, to beautify this historic neighborhood. Clean up of the area and the first opportunity to help paint a portion of the mural starts at 10AM, with a second opportunity to paint from 2-4PM. Anyone unable to attend during these two time slots but still have an interest in painting a portion of the mural may contact The Mural Machine to make arrangements.
“We have to continue to take care of our communities and now’s your chance to help beautify and celebrate the history of one our oldest districts,” said Weyrich.
“South Park is an amazing community that just nine years ago was recognized nationally for its commitment to rehabilitation,” said Christopher “Etch” Weyrich, cofounder of The Mural Machine. “With this mural project you have an opportunity to contribute a piece of yourself to the constant rehab process. It will also be featured as part of the South Park Garden Tour on June 24th!”
The Mural Machine was founded by Tiffany Clark and Christopher “Etch” Weyrich in order to create and celebrate local, large, public art works.
This is free event that is open to anyone of any age! For more information check out our Facebook event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/226238074546754/ or visit Facebook.com and search for South Park Mural Painting.
