Mural Reception at Foodlink

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!!

Mural Debut Success!

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.

Creativity inspired…Snow?!

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.
Very inspiring.

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.
