The long-time mural on the 63rd Street underpass beneath Aurora Avenue North was recently painted over by the city, because of continuing problems with graffiti. Now, a group has stepped forward to paint a new mural.
Our 36th District State Representative Mary Lou Dickerson has assembled a small group to apply for a Small and Simple Project Grant to create new artwork for the underpass at 63rd Street and Aurora. The project will need a steering committee to work with the community, artists, muralists,city departments and the PNA to design and execute the new mural. The 46th Street Mural Project provides a successful example for these efforts.
Even if you are unable to serve on the committee, you can contribute to the matching grant not only with money but through in-kind donations by attending meetings or volunteering services (worth $20/hour!).
The organizational meeting for the 63rd Street Mural Project will take place on Wednesday, September 19 at 7PM on Phinney Ridge. If you would like to serve on the Steering Committee or have other questions contact Kerry Fowler at 206-412-5231 or kwfowler-at-gmail-dot-com.
The exact location of the meeting will be provided to those who call or email to join the Steering Committee.
