Official ribbon cutting and short speaking program will begin at 4:00pm. The street mural is located on Washington Street, adjacent to Burnside Park.
Local artists and community members have worked together over the past year to co-design and install the new original mural. The street mural, which features design work by Abenda Sohn, Ayeel Schofield, Sarah Samway, k. funmilayo aileru, Rodney Davis and Nafis M. White, is located on Washington Street, adjacent to Burnside Park.
