Final Brushstrokes on the Mural

Cesar Viveros has been working on the final mural at St. Marks for about a month now and I met him down there as he was doing the final touch up prior to the big celebration this coming Saturday.  That will include the completion of the murals, the rain garden in Womrath park and the 4600 block corridor improvements.  It’s at 11AM at Womrath park and we’ll be there.

Below is a video of Cesar at St. Marks.  It has been an education for me watching the project evolve.  It was a continuous process that started out with actually asking the residents of Frankford what they wanted.  Cesar listened very intently to everyone and at various points I saw changes come into a mural that people had suggested. It all came from the community from those who chose to participate.
