thank you for making the midway murals 2.0 Crowdfunding campaign a huge success!
The Midway Public Art Working Group is launching 2 new projects for 2017. The first is a mural restoration project of Picnic at Newell Park, a 30 year-old mural by local artist Chris Baird at the corner of Snelling and Englewood Avenues. The second is a collaboration with Hamline University on a new mural at 742 Snelling Avenue, just across the street at the same intersection. We are excited to announce that the new Hamline mural will be led by the talented local emerging artist Ilana Budenosky.
To fund these projects we launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign from April 11 to May 11, and over 150 generous donors helped us raise almost $10,000. We can't thank you all enough for your support! More to come soon on community events connected to these mural projects during the summer months.
