Wall prep for the mural began last week: the stucco was patched and repaired by Gilbert Chavez who has worked with muralist Denise Weaver Ross in the past.
The primer coat will be applied on Monday by the primer team headed by Jay Spang.
Meanwhile, Denise and Roe and a group of volunteers have been cutting the stencils to prepare them for application onto the building. It is an impressive process and all are welcome to view the work in progress. Stencil cutting will continue next Thursday and Friday (September 20 and 21) between 1 and 5pm.
Fundraising is ongoing- we are about halfway to our goal and this last portion is needed to rent a lift to get the artists up to those hard to reach places and of course to buy materials and pay the artists. All are invited to sponsor an animal or plant for the mural. Sponsors will receive of print of that animal or plant and have their name on the plaque after the mural is complete.
