The vibrant colors and active dynamic along with the subject of a leisurely community of the mural will contribute to the brilliant culture Olde Towne East has to offer. We at the OAL are especially excited because this will be the first Bellows mural in Columbus! 🙂

Harmony Project and OAL Mural

Image

Harmony Project’s award-winning program “One Week, One Neighborhood” comes to Franklinton during National Volunteer Week.

This year Harmony Project sought out Ohio Art League in hopes of creating a collaborative art mural for the outside wall of the Boys and Girls Club and for all the Franklinton resident to enjoy.

Ohio Art league artists Jonathan Ryan and Cyrus Fire collaborated with Harmony Project’s artist Jeremy Jarvis to design the mural. During the week volunteers are able to come and paint the mural. A great activity for family and friends, the mural is paint by number. Come out and be part of the mural!

April 21-24th from 9am to 3pm DAILY for volunteers with landscaping, mulching, planting trees and flowers, building a meditation garden, and restoring some of the rooms of the Boys and Girls Club.

The rich and culturally diverse Franklinton community is celebrated as people roll up their sleeves and work with others from across Columbus to leave their community better than they found it. “For You & Me” celebrates the diversity of Columbus by uniting Franklinton residents and business owners with neighbors from other parts of our great city. It’s a chance for Franklinton to introduce itself to many who know very little about it…and an opportunity for our city to grow stronger through the bond of collective volunteer service.

Come out and lend a helping hand! Remember, its National Volunteer Week and Earth Week!
