Make Your MARC is excited to announce that there will be a new mural project happening this June with Urban Choice Charter School.
The project will involve beautifying the hallway leading to the school’s cafeteria. UCCS’s wonderful 8th grade art classes will be leading the way, with the help of parents, teachers, staff and you!
If you are interested in getting involved, we are looking for artist assistants and volunteers to hold responsibilities and take part in the mural making. Design tasks are already well on their way, so email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to get involved.
More detailed scheduling coming soon. To learn more about UCCS, check out their mission page.
The mural showcase for our Foodlink mural collaboration was a great success. We kicked off the night honoring the contributions of Foodlink, Single Volunteers of Rochester (SVR), our community volunteers, and our Make Your MARC lead Artist, Janelle Sandefur. There were delicious home baked goods, a ton of pizza, and the evening even concluded with a tour of the new Foodlink Headquarters! This mural was such a great experience.
Thank you everyone for all of your great work!!

What a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Make Your MARC has made excellent progress on the Foodlink mural, but it looks like we will be headed back next week for some more finishing touches and detailing. Thanks to our two wonderful volunteers yesterday, the mural is really coming together. Check it out!
