Make Your MARC is excited to announce that there will be a new mural project happening this June with Urban Choice Charter School.
The project will involve beautifying the hallway leading to the school’s cafeteria. UCCS’s wonderful 8th grade art classes will be leading the way, with the help of parents, teachers, staff and you!
If you are interested in getting involved, we are looking for artist assistants and volunteers to hold responsibilities and take part in the mural making. Design tasks are already well on their way, so email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to get involved.
More detailed scheduling coming soon. To learn more about UCCS, check out their mission page.
The mural project for Foodlink kicks off Thursday and culminates next Saturday. If you are interested in getting involved, sign up to volunteer by emailing Foodlink at email@example.com. We are in particular need of help on Saturday, June 16th, for the final touches and detail painting. The design is a whimsical portrayal of open farm lands, and the mural will stretch around the corner below.
Here are the schedule details:
June 7th, Thursday, 3pm-7pm: Draw the design on the wall. Mix colors.
June 14th, Thursday, 3pm-7pm: Painting Day 1 (Large areas; Little detail).
June 16th, Saturday, 12pm-4pm: Painting Day 2 (Detailing and Edging).
Come to one, or all three volunteer days! Whichever tickles your fancy most.
Hope to see you there!
When it comes to public murals in the city of Rochester, Make Your MARC wants to do things differently. We are a community mural program, and we want to put the importance back on the process and on those participating.
It’s a tough line to walk, and especially so with a slow developing program. BUT. Make Your MARC is excited to grow with the Rochester community, beautifying our city and building confidence in those involved along the way. We want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to leave a mark on their community. Thinking BIG, wouldn’t it be so great to have city-sponsored murals out in the public, ones that are not just tied to private property?! We’ll get there.
