Color Your Block Mural Project and Nexus Garden

Come help paint a mural and put the Nexus garden to rest | October 27, 2011


You don’t need to be an artist to make your mark on a community-wide mural coming to Xavier’s campus this Saturday, October 29th.  “Color Your Block” is a collaborative, public art project led by Xavier professor Jonathan Gibson and his students that will come to life on the back of the McGrath Health & Wellness Center overlooking the NEXUS Community Garden (1714 Cleneay Ave.). From 9am-1pm, Xavier students and Evanston and Norwood community members are invited to come ‘paint a block’, or two, or three as part of this colorful mural. Participants are also welcome to help “put NEXUS to sleep” during this same timeframe. We hope to complete the mural and put the garden to rest all by 1PM, so come ready to contribute what you’re able!
