Color Rendering of Proposed Mural

Color Rendering of Proposed Mural
by Chris Vincent

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Let's get this party started!

By this time next week, Chris Vincent will have prepared the wall to get the mural started.  The plan is to wash the presently unpainted surface, then prime it, and get a sliver of the mural painted.  Reportedly, the Journal Sentinel is planning to have a camera trained on Discount Liquor's wall so they can do a time lapse story as it's finished.  And I know from what Chris has said about the residents at Avalon Square that they'll be watching!

So if your travels take you through downtown Waukesha after July 10, travel (safely) through the intersection at Main and Barstow and have a gander at that wall.  Get an idea of what it would be like to have your name on a leaf ($100 donation), or under a building ($1000 donation).  Donations of $500 or more will be met with an art-quality print of the scaled-down mural. Online donations made through Good Friend's website are tax-deductible now through August 7. We still need another $5K to get the project fully funded!

Did you get a chance to see Chris and Denise on "The Morning Blend" earlier this week?  If not, here's the link to the segment.  Denise refers to Waukesha schools that are at this point NOT represented by a junior artist. We remind families that this project is about a community and a legacy -- not the district or its actions.  So if you know families whose children have attended any of grades 2-6 during the 2009-'10 school year at the following schools: Hadfield, Lowell, Randall, Saratoga, and Summit View, please have them contact Denise (262-391-1369,  And if you're a middle school student who's participated in the Waukesha Community Art Project and you'd like to assist our junior artist team, contact Page Remmers (262-751-7245,

Buzz ... buzzzz ... bbbuuuzzzz ... Do you hear that??  It's not yet another of the zillion mosquitoes in your ear -- it's the community talking about this project!  Keep buzzing and share in the excitement as the first buildings in the mural are painted.
