Our Friendship Corner community project gives individuals an opportunity to create something beautiful for the neighborhood. In October, a mural of roses was painted along the wall at 7th Street and Dawson Avenue; led by Rose Park resident and artist Cody Lusby and implemented with the help of many fantastic volunteers. Mosaic artist Dawn Mendelson created mosaic kits with the help of neighborhood volunteers to hand out to individuals and families to create at home and return for installation the weekend of November 14th, 2020. The vibrant mosaic designs will accompany the mural of roses. Come by and help out (masks required) or stop by to see the revitalization of the open space come to life!

Our Friendship Corner community project gives individuals an opportunity to create something beautiful for the neighborhood. The first part started with painting a rose mural along the wall from artist and Rose Park resident Cody Lusby, along with many from the neighborhood! The next step is applying individual mosaic flowers on the wall. Check out the instructional online video in English facilitated by artist Dawn Mendelson and the instructional video in Spanish facilitated by artist Luz Mack to learn the art of mosaic. The mosaic art can be done at home. To receive a mosaic kit to create at home please email info@rpna.org.
