Mural on The Nook

$2,705 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 6 months
If you've spent any time in Plaza Midwood, you've probably noticed the ugly facade on The Nook building behind Dairy Queen. Well, artists Matt Hooker and Matt Moore noticed it, too, and they want to transform the bland wall into a work of art worthy of being a centerpiece for Plaza Midwood.

Hooker and Moore want to create a massive mural for the building, and the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association is helping to raise funds for the project.

PMNA, the Plaza Midwood Merchants and the building ownership are all chipping in, but a mural of this scope typically costs between $50,000 and $80,000. When it comes to time, supplies and effort, there's a big gap in funding we need to meet. That's where you come in.

We're asking for donations for the project from the community. By giving directly to PMNA -- a 501c3 organization -- your donation will be 100 percent tax deductible and all revenue will be put toward this amazing community beautifucation initiative. 

Hooker and Moore have done wondeful work throughout Charlotte, including the new mural on the side of Coaltrane's, the wall of the Carolina Theater, the mural at NoDa Brewing and much more. 

They've also worked with neighborhood kids at the annual Plaza Midwood Fall Crawl and will be donating that piece to help raise funds for the Nook mural.

So, if you love art, love Plaza Midwood and want a tax-deductible way to make a big difference in our community, here's your chance.

The Matts are set to start work in January, and the more we can raise, the bigger the scope and the more detailed the work can be. And since this will be something every visitor to Plaza Midwood will see, we want it to represent how awesome our neighborhood is.

Questions? Feel free to contact PMNA.
