13TH Street Outdoor Gallery Project Renews The Face Of A Community

A Community Art Day was held Saturday, March 2nd in order to work towards the rejuvenation of a local community. Hosting the event was The 13th Street Alliance, a non-profit business group dedicated to the commercial revitalization of the area from Federal Hwy. to Powerline and from Sunrise Blvd. North to the Middle River, along with H.O.M.E.S., Inc., a local non-profit organization dedicated to community development and neighborhood revitalization.  Jacklyn Laflamme and Lorraine Maxwell created two colorful murals with funding in part from a Community Foundation, Art Of Community Grant.

I was looking forward to the event as we prepared for the big day, painting the backgrounds and outlining the designs for the murals, creating a giant paint by numbers. Everyone agreed, this made it easier and less intimidating for those who have never painted before.

The Power Of Involving A Community Makes A difference….

In this particular case we really wanted the local community to be a part of the experience, knowing that if everyone in the neighborhood participated in the creation of the art it would allow them to have a sense of ownership over it.

Thank You to all the wonderful volunteers that came out to help make a difference!
