Be part of Concrete Couch's "mega mural"

Posted By on Fri, Feb 26, 2016 at 10:42 AM

Come the week of April 25, Penrose Library will benefit from a new "mega mural" created by Concrete Couch and large groups of volunteers. 

The installation is happening as part of the Community Built Association 2106 Conference and Bootcamp — Concrete Couch is hosting the Oakland-based nonprofit, devoted to the transformation of public spaces.  

Here's a complete schedule of events:

But work's already underway with five Hub Groups who are creating the individual panels of the larger mural — meetings take place once a week (schedule below) and are free to participate in (those under 13 require an adult helper — please RSVP with alex@concretecouch.org or 561-400-2275). 

Concrete Couch encourages families to attend though, and helpers will learn how to design and create a mosaic and ceramic tile mural; there's also opportunities to work on a metal relief element (Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Manitou Art Center). 

Here's the Hub schedule:

Mondays:
Manitou Springs High School, noon to 1:40 p.m.
PPCC-Downtown Studio, 6 to 7:30 p.m. 

Tuesdays:
Community Prep School, 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Will Rogers Elementary, 2:45 to 4 p.m.
Colorado College, Morale House, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
