Welcome to 2016: Year of the Mural!
Five years ago this February the idea that birthed the Greensboro Mural Project sprang out of the dirt during a conversation between two friends at the Edible Schoolyard. Now 4 major murals, 5 small scale walls, dozens of workshops, and over 1,000 community conversations later we are here, still listening, painting, and building.
We could not have come this far without you.
As a way to celebrate the work we have done together these past five years we have declared 2016 the Year of the Mural! We currently have three indoor murals in the pipeline, one at New Garden Friends Meeting, at GillespieElementary, and Irving Park Elementary. We are in the process of seeking and confirming more exterior walls to create outdoor community murals, if you’ve got walls or know people who do get in touch with us to continue the growth of mural arts in Greensboro.
Together we have done so much already, and together we will continue to turn concrete canvasses into community creations.
In paint we trust,
The Greensboro Mural Project
