Event description

Description

Let's PAINT! Access your inner #artivist and join us for a day of painting, song, dance, food, refreshments, games and community. Center 615 has generously donated a 1,925 square foot wall behind their facility directly facing the Parkway Terrace Housing Community and together, we will transform it into a permanent art piece.

Our artist team, led by Nashville artivists Caitlin Mello, Elisheba Israel Mrozik and NORF, is working with the Parkway Terrace community as they design a mural that would inspire and uplift their everyday space. While the mural is the centerpiece of this project, our main motivation is to bring together communities from all over Nashville in face-to-face interaction and celebration of our civic identity as a beautifully diverse city with a myriad of cultural riches to explore and share.
