Calls for art now open!
Hi there!
Thanks for signing up for our mailing list.  We promise only to send email when it's important.  If you want to keep up with our day-to-day happenings, subscribe to our blog, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter or Tumblr.
So what's so important that we're sending you email now?  Lots of things!
We have several calls for art now open!  If you are a muralist interested in painting one of the 40 doors we have available, now's the time to sign up!  Click here to submit a mural proposal.
We are seeking Roxbury artists/graphic designers to help us design the official T-shirts.  Send us your design and become (locally) famous!
We've got our first few events on the calendar!  We're still hammering out the details before we go public, but we will have cleanup days in April, mural painting on May 11, we're working on an Ethiopian dance event for July, and we are also working on a food truck event to benefit a local charity later in July.  Keep an eye on our social media or our calendar page for updates as we add more events.
We've got our first grant!  Thanks to the Awesome Foundation for providing us with seed money for the mural project!
We've got our first artists! Local resident Michelle Murray will install a "Before I Die" wall along the site, Rufus Faulk will do a mural on Door #12, Nate Swain is proposing several giant painted banners to cover the retaining wall, photographers Jay Hagenbuch and Dan Rajter will be doing portraits of Roxbury residents, and there is lots more to come!
We will soon be announcing partnerships with a variety of local nonprofits!  
Please join us in turning this space into something beautiful for the community.  Send us your ideas, follow us on social media, and most importantly tell your friends!  We'll see you in Bartlett Yard!
This planter is a whole lotta ugly and it sits right in front of the main entrance.  Help us turn it into something beautiful!  
What's your big idea?  Flowers?  Herbs?  A sculpture garden?  Paint?  Pergola? Yarnbombing? Mosaic tile?  Whatever it is that you would want to do with this planter, we want to hear it!  Submit your ideas here..
