Now that was fast! The 46th Street Mural will be dedicated on Friday, August 27th.
In April, the City announced that the Fremont/Wallingford 46th Street Mural Project would be funded through the Small and Simple Projects Fund:
This project will build community and improve the cityscape by constructing a lasting mural to brighten this underpass, used by thousands of cars and many pedestrians every day. It will create a neighborhood identification linking upper Fremont and Wallingford and deter crime and graffiti by partnering with community members and organizations to sponsor and participate in constructing the mural.
“Come Celebrate Your Mural!” says the 46th Street Mural Project.
- When: Friday, August 27th 3pm-6pm
- Where: 46th street, above the mural on the west side of Aurora Ave
- What: Refreshments, music, mural dedication, and graduation ceremony for the Urban Artworks youth
It’s a free event, but you can pay it backward by volunteering to participate in the mural’s stewardship.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in this project, from the 46th Street Mural Project Steering Committee, to the volunteers and artists, to the large number of Wallingford supporters and donors (full list here).
