Paint The City

The City will never be the same. There is now an experience we all share from this point moving forward. An experience that is rooted in pain but is sprouting with hope and unity. Paint the City founded by Barrett Keithley and Missy Perkins mission is to create inspiring works of art that support the equality of all people and show that BLACK LIVES MATTER. Hope, solidarity, and inclusion is our benchmark for each and every masterpiece created. 

Who knew 2020 would be such a year filled with obstacles that would test our humanity. Many people lost their jobs and many more lost more than just an income. Our artist community has especially been hit the hardest. 

Funds are needed ASAP!! We are very appreciative due to the fact that this project is already in ACTION. Funds obtained will be used to directly benefit artist for donating their time and supplies to the effort of healing our City through art.Your donation helps to not only support the creation of works of art, but also the sustainability of each and every artist. 

We thank you and in the spirit of artistry we LOVE YOU!
