We Love #LB Murals!

My mom forwarded me an email from her co-worker! I may have to go check this out 🙂

Dear Friend:

I want to share with you an exciting new project that will bring together our community, create locally-produced art, and enhance and beautify our downtown. The Molina family, who own the Press-Telegram building on 7th & Pine, have been working with the Arts Council of Long Beach, the Downtown Long Beach Associates and the non-profit group We Love Long Beach to create 25 different murals on the site of their future development.

The murals, funded by the Molina family, the Arts Council of Long Beach, and the Downtown Long Beach Associates, will be created from 25 giant We Love Long Beach logos, stenciled in a band around the entire façade, and then each interpreted by a different artist or community group. Several of the artists are affiliated with Artists as Art, a downtown group of artists organized by curator Liza Mitchell. Lyons Art Supplies is sponsoring the materials for the art.

The murals will be painted over 2 days and you are invited to participate on June 12th and 13th. We will be kicking off the event at 11:00 am this Saturday, June 12th. Anyone wishing to be involved with the project should contact Robin Jones of We Love Long Beach at volunteer@welovelb.org

The murals will be temporary, remaining until the building is developed, but we hope to reuse the murals in other locations once a development has started.

Art builds communities and greatly enhances the character of a neighborhood. Hope you can join us for a great weekend.

Go Long Beach!
