Douglas Rouse completes mural for Mountain Equipment Recyclers

Posted By on Sat, Dec 15, 2012 at 9:41 AM

It's a daisy-chain of giving. Mountain Equipment Recyclers now has a mural in its shop, thanks to local artist Douglas Rouse. But instead of simply paying Rouse for the work, MER will donate $500 to the Trails and Open Space Coalition, an Indy Give! participant.

From the press release:

We met Douglas through mutual friends and asked if he’d create a mural in our store. He knew MER had a greater cause contributing regularly to local non-profits. He quickly agreed to donate his time. Our store is very excited to showcase his work and Trails and Open Space Coalition is appreciative of the $500 boost to their Indy Give efforts.

Rouse, meanwhile, has also just finished a mural on the ceiling of Gasoline Alley, adding another notch to downtown's impressive mural count. See next week's Indy for more on that.
