Bridge Way Mural Painting Party Saturday, August 13

By master · August 10th, 2011 · No Comments

It’s been a tough go for the Bridge Way Mural. Originally painted by Patrick Gabriel in 1997, the mural has seen its share of tagging and other vandalism in recent years. There is even some graffiti present right now as well.

Members of the Fremont Neighborhood Council who attended a recent Fremont Arts Council meeting decided to come up with a plan to clean up the mural. They’ll be holding the first of many painting parties this Saturday, August 13.

Volunteers are needed for a painting party scheduled for THIS SATURDAY, August 13th, from 10a – 2p, to remove graffiti from the beleaguered Bridge Way Mural.  At 10a, volunteers can meet at the Powerhouse (3940 Fremont Avenue North) to help carry paint and supplies up to the mural.  At the mural, volunteers will be needed all day to wield a paintbrush, cleaning supplies, and doing some landscaping at the mural along Bridge Way under Aurora Avenue.

The next painting party will be held August 27th

To get involved with the painting party, contact FAC Board President, Michael Clark, at
