Community Mural Project

About the Project

Gallery North worked with former Carmela Kolman Fellow, Julia Jane Moore, on a community mural project fulfilling its mission to stimulate interest in the arts and get to the center of our core belief that art is for everyone. 

This project promotes authorship to community members and, in turn,  encourages stewardship. It is inspired by ecological education and environmental sustainability, which Julia is very passionate about. She hopes to use the process of art making to educate our community members on taking care of our local environment.

This project began with three, free, workshops for planning. The culmination of these workshops will be two full painting days where participants will enjoy time painting and collaborating.

Everyone is welcome!
