Community Paint Day for "Memories on Mercer Street" Mural!

Back of Appalachian Coffee House , 860 Mercer Street

Help paint the beautiful Mercer Street mural! Designed by Ellen Elmes, this work of art honors & celebrates the vibrant history of our beloved Mercer Street. The talented Lacey Vilandry will lead the painting. Creatively-inclined people in the area are invited to come help paint the mural; anyone age 12 & over that has a steady hand and can paint inside the lines is invited to help paint the artwork on fabric sections of an overall 12’H x 20’W mural design. The fabric pieces, once painted, will be glued with an acrylic gel permanently to the side of Kiz at Heart Day Care in the Historic District this summer. Don't feel creatively inclined? That's ok! Come watch, chat about downtown and enjoy! This program is presented by The RiffRaff Arts Collective, with financial assistance from the WV Division of Culture & History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
