You’re invited to show up between 9 a.m. to noon Monday-Friday June 18 thru 22 to help with a Middle Shooks Run Park mural near Willamette Avenue and S. Shooks Run. It’s an example of how arts, culture and creativity can help deepen a sense of place and increase vibrancy. Pictured is the wall that will be painted.
You are not required to come every day, but will learn the most and be the biggest help if you do. (Kids 12 and under must bring an adult.) All programs are free.
The non-profit Concrete Couch, City of Colorado Springs, and private business and organization sponsors are teaming up on SCAMP, a Summer Community Art and Mural Program.
A September bike tour will visit the 2012 SCAMP project sites throughout greater downtown Colorado Springs.
Most materials are reused and donated from The ReStore, 411 S Wahsatch Ave., or El Paso County’s Household Hazardous Waste Facility, 3255 Akers Dr. Did you know that anybody can shop The ReStore’s gently used building supplies to benefit Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity? And, at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility, residents can not only drop off electronics, batteries, motor oil, chemicals, and paints for free recycling, but can also find free paints and other items to reuse.
