Updates on The Mural Project

What is the North Tabor Mural Project?
The North Tabor Neighborhood Association has been working with the City at the Southeast Precinct Building to be able to paint a neighborhood mural on their retaining wall at the corner of NE 47th Avenue and NE Burnside Street next summer. The proposed project is called the North Tabor Mural Project and will build community as well as help to identify North Tabor neighborhood. This is a part of a continuing effort that the neighborhood association has been working on beginning with the Street Banner Project and the Health & Safety Fair which were funded through a grant earlier this year through Southeast Uplift.

What is the timeline for the project?
The goal is to have the mural completed by September 2013. That means we need to select a muralist by the end of October 2012, and start fundraising/promoting the project immediately. We hope to be awarded a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council next spring and will also be seeking additional sponsors, in-kind donations and volunteers throughout this next year. This fall we will seek input into the design from our community and plan to start painting next summer. Our hope is to have a dedication ceremony for the completed mural coinciding with next year’s Equinox Party.
How can I help?
There will be many ways for neighbors and businesses to get involved. A more comprehensive list of opportunities will be available on our website in the coming weeks as well as published in our next newsletter. However, the best way to keep up with the latest information on the project is to contact us at NorthTaborMuralProject@gmail.com to express your interest in our project and/or be added to our e-mail list.
