If you have your artwork up on the Peterson Art Wall Ocober 22-23 is finish and varnish day.
Attention Wall Artists: You need to Varnish your mural before we plant the garden. I am getting the plants from the native plant nursery this weekend! So you need to call me and to borrow the bucket of varnish anytime to complete your square, it needs to be washed first then painted with 1-2 coats of varnish to protect it from graffiti and the elements. You may do this anytime in the next two weeks, I have sent out several emails explaining that this is each artists’ responsibility.
And If your mural square is not finished being painted and I have not heard from you, it will be whitewashed and given away in a juried lottery next spring when we finish the community and youth murals on the chapman end.
I will commit to being out there at the wall the weekend of Oct 22nd and 23rd at 11 AM and will stay until 1 PM to assist with the Varnishing of panels etc. If no one shows up I am NOT planning on Varnishing them by myself !!!
And everyone else, I am sending this to you as friendly and helpful neighbors, show up if you would like to help with this sort of thing and bring a ladder or a paint brush if you have it!
Also we will be gardening beginning on Nov. 5th and 6th if not sooner. Keep your email peeled for other planting working dates!
Thank you in advance. -Jill
Come one, Come all…
Saturday and Sunday November 5th & 6th we will be having a planting day at Peterson Art Wall.
We will be planting new plants from 10 am to 2 pm.
Jill & I went to Joaquin Miller Nursery today and checked out 169 California/Oakland native plants the Friends of Sausal Creek has grown & set aside for us. Many are seedlings that will fill out in the next year.
We will be planting, laying mulch, finishing the gravel path & getting rid of the last of the dirt pile. Come join us on Sat 11/5 & Sun 11/6 from 10a-2p. Come for one or both days. Bring family & friends. This is the last big push to finish this project.
Bring small gardening tools if you have them. We would also like to recruit people to help water the plants until the rains come.
Thanks to all of you who have made this community project happen, we can finally see the finish line.
