As national arts funding comes under fire, we must take a stand. East Nashville-based artist Jake Elliott of What. Creative Group will be leading a 50-ft community mural, called the "Nashville Quilt," designed to shine a light on the impact that arts programs have in supporting Nashville residents.

This mural is a part of the Off The Wall mural project, a world-class, outdoor art installation designed to bring responsible revitalization to the Charlotte Ave corridor, 

Elliott will be working with several Nashvillle-based non-profits who include arts programming as a service offered to the community, including the Parks Center , Poverty and the Arts , Room In The Inn , and the Oasis Center .

The final piece will feature 16 artists and their art who are active in programming offered by these organizations, and it will take several months to complete. During that time, Elliott will be leading several workshops for participating artists, helping them design, plan, and paint for the piece. Author Lily Hansen will interview each artist and photographer Elizabeth Ratliff will capture images throughout the process. At the end of the initiative, these interviews and photos will be used to tell the stories of the artists and organizations and programs that support their work.

Your donation will cover the costs of supplies each artist needs to complete his/her piece and the costs of supplies needed to paint the mural that connects each piece. This includes paint, brushes, and supplies needed to prep and finish the wall. Your donation will also be used to pay contractors hired to assist in the project, such as author Lily Hansen, to allow them to continue their creative work.
