This is Stanley’s building. Stanley’s Garage (who is an excellent mechanic might we add) owns this cute little corner building. Right now, it’s boarded up and used for storage. While there is no plan to lease or sell this building in the near future, Stanley has agreed to let us build a temporary wall over the facade for public art projects. So, we will be building this wall for multi-functional use…allowing murals, installations and even space for artists to sell. This is such a great corner, and we will be able to activate this space and add chairs and tables, donated by the community (see a past post for info about this). Soon, you will able be able to relax on this corner viewing public art, playing community games or listening to live music.
We’re lucky to have The Society (
), who has volunteered to take on this project by building the wall. For the first few months, The Society artists will debut on the wall, doing live painting and other projects. Then, we will develop plans to use the wall for the future–whether it be a rotating featured artist, a place for other neighborhood projects to utilize and so on. To make this happen, The Society will be building the wall and gathering the materials. The list of materials we need to purchase new totals about $200. Since this is a community project, we are asking our neighborhood and community to help us build the wall. If you are passionate to see more public art in the district, please consider helping this cause! Click the link below to donate! Thank you!
