Norwood mural project

$260 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 3 months
Created February 6, 2018
The Norwood Mural located at 3115 12th Ave N, Across from Louie's appliance store, at the entrance of the historic Norwood Community.
I started this mural in 2013, a personally significant year. Family illness insisted upon my presence. I wanted to paint and give the only gift I had. To heal and hope to heal others, to reflect, as through history we can see our potential destiny.
I needed a reminder and declaration of my relevance. To meditate on mortality, seasons, revivals... stories of a place that has gone through more changes demographically than most countries... white flight, black aspirations, cultures and clashes... steel and fire... God and what it means to really be a community. And the constant need of a reminder... maybe a mural can say to you... " my paint may peel, and your bones turn to dust, but even a whisper from one persons lips and into universal infinity we go..."

All that said, we ran out of funding, and I can not literally sleep at night often because this Mural is not complete.
I would like to erase it and start again and enlist members of the youth community to design, and complete the Mural with myself and another local artist...

You can make this happen!❤️
