Pictured: Rose Park Resident & Artist Cody Lusby and daughter Penny painting roses in Rose Park Neighborhood

From the creation of a large scale alleyway mural project in Rose Park Neighborhood, to helping improve and beautify a vacant parking lot, Cody Lusby’s vision for neighborhood change has flourished into a new direction.

It started in reaction to the isolation of COVID, when Cody decided to offer a door to door rose painting service to neighbors. Cody reflects on the process stating:  “My daughter and I bring our wagon full of supplies and I paint the rose or the resident paints the rose, and I coach them through the process.  The main purpose is to meet neighbors and get to know them.  By the end of our time together we made connections and added a little more beauty to our neighborhood – Changing the world one rose at a time.” 

If you are interested in having a rose painted in front of your house, email Cody Lusby for more information at   

Cody is a contemporary visual artist who aspires to change the world through local community action and developing large scale projects that enable viewers to feel more empowered.
