The mural showcase for our Foodlink mural collaboration was a great success. We kicked off the night honoring the contributions of Foodlink, Single Volunteers of Rochester (SVR), our community volunteers, and our Make Your MARC lead Artist, Janelle Sandefur. There were delicious home baked goods, a ton of pizza, and the evening even concluded with a tour of the new Foodlink Headquarters! This mural was such a great experience.
Thank you everyone for all of your great work!!

Make Your MARC would like to thank our community partners for all of their help:
This has been such a wonderful project. We will be announcing the celebration date soon. Thank you Janelle Sandefur for your lovely design, thank you volunteers for all of your efforts, and thank you Foodlink for this amazing project opportunity!

Thank you to everyone who came out! Make Your MARC’s first Mural Debut was a great success. We had quite the large turn out, and the party even came equipped with a DJ! How fun! Thank you Rochester Parkour for hosting us.

The evening opened with a smaller crowd observing the Ninja Warrior obstacle course competition, equipped with snacks, as apart of the Rochester Parkour Gym’s 1-Year Anniversary Celebration. Then we had some project announcements, introductions about the Make Your MARC project, some thank yous were shared, followed by a slideshow of photographs depicting our community accomplishments. Make Your MARC was thrilled to announce the new, community-voted mural title, “Freedom Though Movement”. Of course, there was delicious food provided (homemade tomato soup, cookies, and brownies. Yum!), and we all played the night away to jams provided by DJ Ethan Kellex. Such a wonderful way to wrap up our first mural project.
Today, Make Your MARC is headed over to scope out the upcoming Rochester community mural project at the Foodlink headquarters over on Mt. Read! So excited to check out all of those blank walls! Details to come.
In the meantime, mark your calendars for the Make Your MARC Mural Debut Showcase with Rochester Parkour!
