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!
We are looking for more mosaic flowers! Please email email@example.com for pick-up OR drop-off location. BIG, SUPER BIG installation is November 7&8th. We want the completed mosaics completed and in by November 6th.
