$1 = $6

According to American's For The Arts for every dollar you invest in a city-wide mural project, $6 is generated in revenue for the city.  It attracts locals and tourists, improves the landscape, and it boosts property values.

 

OUR PROCESS

We work closely the with the building's stakeholders to come up with the mural design.  We then raise the necessary funds to hire professionals to install our murals.

 

VOLUNTEER

We welcome civic-minded individuals & organizations to help us with identifying and securing potential mural locations.  We are also looking for volunteers to help donate painting supplies, equipment to make the job easier, as well as wall prep, basic painting, and refreshments.

 

100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE

Your monetary gift will go to the costs of labor and materials for the murals.  This donation can be 100% tax deductible.  Please check with your tax professional for details.
