Paul Maillard Business & Arts Initiative was formed after the idea for a mural was presented to be painted on a local building. The addition of visual artworks throughout the community will serve as inspiration for us today and for future generations. We hope this initiative will spark a movement of improvement, new business, collaboration and community involvement here on Paul Maillard Road, Old Luling and our entire parish.
St. Charles Parish has been on the mend since Hurricane Ida made her way through our community last year. Since then, countless families have been repairing their battered homes, fighting with insurance companies, living in campers, and some homes have even been torn down. On Paul Maillard alone, many homes have been torn down, some from Hurricane Zeta in 2020 and most have come down or are marked for teardown since Hurricane Ida.
Paul Maillard used to be home to many bustling businesses...It is our "Main Street." There is so much potential in this section of Luling, and we would love to see it come back to life. We have many opportunities for artists to show off their work throughout the Paul Maillard corridor.
We are looking for artists to capture the spirit of our hometown, our state and our mission. Your donations will help to fund these projects.
Any amount would be very gratefully appreciated, small amounts add up over time, and we will keep the fundraiser going until we have what we need. We hope these inspirational works of art will spark our community's rebirth.
