I took these shots last Sunday when the main artist, with some help, was working overtime to get the new murals at the Park View Rec Center further along. I’ll post some updates next week. I’m sure there will be a noticeable difference.

Park View UNC Meeting Tomorrow

Sorry for any confusion earlier today. The August Park View UNC newsletter was distributed, and I have a less that perfect version after the jump. Because I got an electronic version later than I should have (my error for not requesting sooner), I didn’t have time to clean it up.
That said, if you have the time and are interested in any of the topics listed, feel free to stop by the Park View Rec Center at 7 pm tomorrow. Continue reading

New Mural Coming to Park View Rec Center

Parkview Recreation CenterWhile I don’t have any images yet, I wanted to share what I know about the new mural coming to the Park View Rec Center.

Based on the preliminary plans I saw last Friday, the new mural will be located on two walls — the south wall of the pool house and the north, opposite, wall of the main structure. None of the murals along Otis Street will be impacted at this time.

The two murals will be largely composed of abstract landscapes that have words breaking forth from the soil. The words will be in English and Spanish and are meant to convey a spirit of unity.

The walls chosen have already be painted with a base coat so that the designs can be transferred. I suspect painting could start as early as today, but will definitely start this week.
