Mural Painters Needed: No Experience Necessary
BRADENTON -- It’s Mural Paint Day on Saturday, and Bradenton residents - sixth grade through seniors - are invited to join the artist Michael Parker and his team of neighborhood muralists to help paint the 100 feet of panels of Life Choices Life Cycles.
No experience or talent is necessary – just enthusiasm and two hours of time between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on May 5. To sign up, email email@example.com with the time you want to paint. Painting will take place in the parking lot of the Police Substation at 14th Avenue and 14th Street West in Bradenton.
When completed, the mural will be hung on the side of the Police Substation. Life Choices Life Cycles is a community art project from the Bradenton Downtown Development Authority public art program. It was designed as a collaboration between community artist Michael Parker and a group of residents of all ages from the neighborhood. Life Choices Life Cycles depicts young people who have to make choices about staying or leaving the community that has nurtured them as they become adults, and who we hope will help build the community in the future.
The DDA invests in projects to revitalize and spur economic development in the downtown and nearby neighborhoods, such as 14th Street West Public Art, and adds art experiences to the daily lives of residents, upgrades the urban landscape, and helps make the area appealing to businesses and investors.
