The “Safe Animals Safe Kids” mural, created through the support of 85 Kickstarter backers, is complete!
The mural consists of three 4′ W x 8′ H wood panels (making a 12′ W x 8’H mural) and a sign that explains the project as a part of the Okey’s Promise mission. The mural will be hung on an exterior wall of the Imperial Room, a restaurant/lounge in the Canton Ohio Arts District at 420 Court Ave. NW, on Monday, August 1,2011.
The mural will be dedicated with much fanfare during the Canton First Friday festivities on Friday, August 5 at 7:30 pm. The Critter Parade, a tradition of First Fridays, will end its route at the mural, and at that point, we will share some fun and inspiration with words from ArtsinStark President and C.E.O. Robb Hankins, Stacey Giammarco of the Domestic Violence Partnership, Inc., and myself.
As is tradition with my animal themed murals, local animal rescue groups with adoptable animals will be part of the dedication. You just might meet your new best friend there!
If you can make it to Canton, OH I hope that you will join in the celebration! If not, we will have a live broadcast on UStream so you can attend from anywhere in the world. Stay tuned for details!
