Pop Up Community Paint Project
This past spring, Dane Arts Mural Arts worked with students involved in Prairie Music & Arts programming at Community Schools sites (Westside, CH Bird, Patrick Marsh, Prairie Phoenix Academy) to create the design for a community mural that will be installed in Sheehan Park this fall.
The theme of the mural is inclusion, and the design is complete. We are inviting ALL community members to help to paint this mural. We will have two Pop Up Community Paint days next week - July 12 at Vandenberg and July 13 at Wetmore, 10am-1pm on both days.
We hope you can make it out to add some color to the mural!!

Meet Rohey Malick Lowe!
We are so honored and grateful for the opportunity we had last week to host a welcome reception for Rohey Malick Lowe Official, Mayoress of Banjul, The Gambia. Joining her in attendance were local Gambian community members. The conversation was centered on sharing strengths, struggles, and insights about each of our communities. We thank Representative Samba Baldeh for arranging this meeting.
Fun Fact: Rohey Malick Lowe is the first female elected to serve in this role.
