Historic WalkerLake is the historic commercial center of St. Louis Park,
and today is a small business corridor with great charm and an exciting mix of businesses and uses. The Historic WalkerLake Placemaking Committee and GoodSpace Murals are creating a 1,500 sq. ft. mural to bring the community together and tell the collective story of Historic WalkerLake’s past, present, and future.
We need your input!
We are currently seeking input from the community that the artists can incorporate into the mural design, so that it reflects the values, hopes, and dreams for Historic WalkerLake. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey and provide your ideas for what could be included in this new piece of public artwork!
Tuesday, October 22, 3-5pm at SLP Nest, 3416 Library Ln
Join the project artists from GoodSpace Murals to add your ideas and input to the mural design process! Connect and collaborate with others from the community about your ideas, and use your artistic skills with help from project artists to create imagery that you would like to see in the mural. Free and open to all.
Two Community Paint Parties will be scheduled in early 2020 so you can make your mark on this community mural! Artists from GoodSpace Murals will provide all the tools and guidance needed so people all ages and abilities can contribute.
GoodSpace Murals is led by artistic director Greta McLain and is a community/public mural and mosaic artist team based in Minneapolis. Their work is grounded in the belief that art plays a critical role in human interaction, creating interesting and unexpected spaces for people to connect. Their work celebrates the people and values of a place, highlighting the history, dreams and needs of different communities. www.goodspacemurals.com
