Chestnut Street Mural

Hi All!

We're a coalition of students from Montclair High School located in Montclair, New Jersey who are working to repaint and revitalize the anti-gun violence mural under the Chestnut Street overpass. The mural, created in the 1990s, is desperately in need of restoration. As students growing up in a time period where school shootings are far too commonplace along with the rise of the Never Again Movement, we would like to restore the mural's message by repainting it with a new design. 

Our project was inspired by the Never Again Movement and the students of Parkland. In the past school year, a few students affected by recent gun-related violence visited our school, promoting awareness and action. Since Montclair is a hub for art, we decided to fuse our voice with visual arts. 

Currently, we're undergoing an approval process with NJTransit, who owns the overpass. We are hoping to complete the project by the end of 2018, so we would need to reach our goal within the next few weeks.

The funds would be used to buy paint, primer, and other supplies. Any surplus funds would be donated to Never Again. 

Any financial donations would be amazing. We would love your support. 

Thank you!
