Just a few days ago, our beautiful, 80 degree, Rochester weather ignited thoughts of large outdoor murals covering walls of our city with lush, flowering trees.
Now, a mere 4 days later, we have this…
Guess it could be worse. (Like the year we had snow in May!) At least the flowers are still beautiful! Hang in there, Lilac Festival!
Still working on editing photos from our wonderfully successful Mural Debut at the Rochester Parkour Gym’s 1-Year Anniversary Celebration. Hoping to get them up tomorrow, but in the meantime, snuggle up with a blanket and hot cocoa, and enjoy this silly, frosty surprise. Here’s a creative project to enhance your sipping enjoyment from Danni at Oh, Hello Friend.
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.
