Third Space Mural Program Repairs

$8,561 of $8,500 goal

Raised by 174 people in 26 days
Recently several murals our organization worked to commission with the help of local community members and business owners along Des Moines' East Grand corridor, were vandalized with symbols of hate and white supremacy.  To erase these symbols and restore them, we will need to work with a few or our local artist connections as well as our lead artists for three of the murals, who came from Miami, Florida and Phoenix Arizona to share their art.  We will also work with local professionals to cover these murals in a protective anti-graffiti clear coat to prevent future vandalism.

Any additional funding that we raise in this process will go toward the production of additional murals throughout the community.  While we cannot always protect from hate we will continue to do our best to curate art that is reflective of the diverse people that make up our community and ensure that they feel welcome and safe in the places they live.  If they attack our murals with these kinds of sentiments then we will rally our community, we will fix them and then we put up an additional mural. 33892198_1540071771504405_r.jpeg33892198_1540071797122410_r.jpeg33892198_1540071830481619_r.jpeg33892198_1540071851108363_r.jpeg33892198_1540071866857253_r.jpeg33892198_1540071888296619_r.jpeg33892198_1540071908987301_r.jpeg33892198_1540071933953362_r.jpeg33892198_1540071975276726_r.jpeg33892198_1540071996352844_r.jpeg
