Morning all!! There is a lot of leg work that has to be done before a mural can be born!!! Finding a wall- getting permission from building owners and tenants -
approval from city or town in which a mural is to be painted- the design - more approvals -funding and finally the mural!!! Although it is a lengthy process it its so amazing when it is complete. Public art brings joy to all who get to interact with it!!! Help us Bring joy to our communities! Thank you all so much for your donations and future donations.
