Exciting Mural News!
Springtime in Paris - September, 2022
We are beyond excited to announce that we will be partnering with Rachel's Cafe & Creperie for our second community mural project - happening this September! We are currently in the design phase, working with Rachel and supporting local partner artists, to create the perfect design to be painted on the side of her downtown Lancaster restaurant. The Heart Artists are thrilled at the opportunity to leave their mark on the city once again and showcase their talents on a highly visible street. We need your help, though! We are looking for generous donors who would be willing to give financially to this project, as well as their time volunteering, to make this creative dream a reality.
Our goal is to raise $15,000 to cover all estimated expenses of this project which can be broken down in the following:
- $1,500 Paint, Supplies & Site Clean-up
- $1,000 Mural Shield (supplies and application)
- $1,018 Scissor Lift
- $3,000 Lead Artists
- $8,700 Extrinsic Costs
If you would like to help with this project, either financially or through volunteering (or both!), please reach out to our Day Services Coordinator, Crystal Freund, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (717) 656-2466. Thank you for making a direct impact on the Heart Artists and for supporting them as they showcase their art to the world!
LANCASTER COMMUNITY MURAL PROJECT - SEPTEMBER 13-17, 2021
Some of the Heart Artists collaborated with Lancaster Community Artists, Julia Elizabeth Morrell, Colin Morrell and Maria Tomassetti, on a garden mural project. The mural took place mid September on the 300 block of North Mary Street in Lancaster City, PA.
This community project uplifted the Heart Artists and showcased their talents and capabilities to the world. The mural features original designs by the artists as well as sculptural flowers by another local metal working artist.
"It's such a meaningful project to these beautiful artists and humans whose art will be loud and proud out in Lancaster City on a building!" says local partner artist, Allison Rohland.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated or just showed up to show your support for this community project. The Heart Artists had immense fun getting out of the Studio and trying their hands at a brand new canvas. If you're in the Downtown Lancaster City area, we encourage you to stop by and check out this this incredible project in person.
